    One thought on “The Complete Hammer's Slammers Volume 2”

    1. This a great series of SF military stories. Drake makes combat exciting to read while leaving you with no doubt that you do not want to be there.

    2. Although the selections were 20-30 years old, they feel as if Drake just finished them last week. Outstanding work!

    3. Drake re fights Viet Nam by telling about honorable warriors hampered by effeminate politicians and incompetent draftees. Despite these self-serving prejudices, he spins an entertaining story.

    4. Simply some of the best military fiction I've ever read. I first read the stories as a teenager, and later re-read them in this collection as an adult.A lot of military fiction comes across with the attitude that only soldiers know how to get things done, and that if the civilians would just get out of the way and let them do their jobs then everything would be a lot better.I used to read that attitude into the Slammers, but it's not really there. What's there is the attitude that good soldiers [...]

    5. It's not wrong to declare that this is more of the same type of material that was in the first volume, but I think the stories in this one are a lot stronger because Drake spends more time on characters. Despite this being a pulpish military science fiction series, the author does a pretty good job of showing the emotional impact of war on the individual. All of the Hammer's Slammers series is worth reading, especially for those who want to understand war and the individual. Drake's experiences [...]

    6. David Drake has a unique position to comment on what its like to fight in a war, given he is a Vietnam veteran. These stories are fantastic science fiction, and often leave you with a realization that war often isn't simple, or fair.

    7. I've had a soft spot for the world of Hammer's Slammers for a long time, and it's good for my inner completeist to know that I'm going to be able to read all of it that's been written.
