I just finished chapter 1. Pretty good so far.I am really liking this book. It compares well to In fury born by David Weber
I am at the point they are discussing corporal punishment and they have some interesting ideas. Sadly, the flogging post in my state (Delaware) was removed a few years ago
That's how women were viewed in the military back when this book was written. A lot has changed since then, obviously. But the perception, back 1987 when the book was published, is accurate for its time period.Not having been in the military, I find some of the sexist comments disturbing. Women are not really treated as equals, even though they make the “best pilots”, and they seem to be seen as as object to be had.
Ch 5. I'm slacking, but the pages are turning!How far along is everyone? No spoilers please!
Page number or percentage should suffice. I know one person has already completed the book in 1 day!
Nice progress! I am really slacking here. Gonna try to get through chapter 2 tonight.Ch 5. I'm slacking, but the pages are turning!
Glad my basic training was crawling through fire ants in Ft Benning, GA (though I can't say I was glad at the time :tired_face:) instead of freezing to death with only PT to keep me warm!
What are you, a speed reader? Sheesh!Done with the book
