    1. Great addition to the series, the "Empire Strikes Back" entry. The tension builds to such a level that I had to put the book down at times. The heroes never faced such odds, and they are hard-pressed to meet them. Dark, yet hopeful, this book sets the scene for the sequel.

    2. Slow burn to disaster, a good sense of everyone being way over their heads and things happening too quickly to be contained. familiar but well used scifi tropes make for a good read

    3. An American Civil War regiment gets transported to a world where a savage spieces comes around every few years and collects tribute in the form of human flesh. Thisseries trods a well-worn path of military sci-fi (a prime example is Jerry Pournelle’s “Janissaries”?), Fortschen does decently well. The first book is not bad, but by the time I got to the end of book three, I discovered that the story was not really going anywhere anymore. There is better stuff than this out thereokssboch/?p=7 [...]

    4. Un bon livre qui nous plonge u peu plus dans cette affreuse guerre où les humains et les "géants" de ce monde s'affrontent pour leur survie.On apprend un peu plus sur l'univers respectifs des races, mais on y va souvent tellement en profondeur que cela ralenti le rythme de lecture et devient quelque peu aride mêmeSi cela n'avait pas été de la fin qui m'a agréablement surprise, j'aurais noté ce tome 3/5. Disons que le dernier chapitre rattrape avec brio le reste qui se promène de lent à [...]

    5. Fun read. The book is the first of a two part series. In other words it leaves you on a cliff hanger. If you are going to read this one go ahead and buy Book #4 Fateful Lightning at the same time.

    6. If you like the "displaced person in another world" stories then this is the series for you. Now we get an entire regiment of people on another earth. Fantastic story and awesome characters. Highly recommended

    7. The Lost Regiment series is probably my favorite SF series, as opposed to fantasy. Forstchen is great with the historical aspects of the series and knows how to tell a good story and introduce sympathetic and realistic characters. I like this series very much.

    8. Dull as ditchwater. But I wanted to see how they managed to overcome the odds. That was pretty dull too.I wonder if the 4th book is worth finding as this one is hard to find at a reasonable price.Completists only as they used to say in the NME.

    9. Great addition to the series. Looking forward to book 4. This series is good enough for movies to be made of the books.

    10. This solid series gets better with each book, great battle scenes, decent characters, wonderful build up to the conclusion along with a continued enrichment of an alien culture.
