Cute but disappointing (after having read how great & groundbreaking it's supposed to be.) Book 1 was much better than Book 2. Love the cover art.

I've only ever read this author in collaboration with L. Sprauge deCamp. But he's got an excellent, detailed, inventive style and can world-build as well as anyone. I found myself wondering how he'd put so much into such a slim novel, and how he expected to complete it properly. In the end, he succeeded by making the ending turn on how all the various larger parts pushed and pulled a small but central part of the story. Satisfying, although I wish he'd written more.

Details about the WW I soldiers caught behind the lines in the Argonne forest in Oct. 1918. I saw the movie about it a few years ago. Real facts are good but a little different.
