Crusade

Crusade Crusade (Starfire #2) by David Weber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very good book. The book was written in 1992 but you would be forgiven for thinking that it was written later and was politically inspired. Idiot politicians meddling in the affairs of the military…check. Religious fanatics…check. Civilians killed by said religious fanatics…check.

Luckily, despite the fact that the politicians do their best to foster nothing but their short term political goals and long term careers (just like most of our politicians today), in the book these complete thundering morons really get what they deserve. Similarly the religious fanatics do indeed get blasted in the book.

Lots and lots of space battles. The space battles are quite well done. It is one thing that David Weber does well. I really liked the main good guy as well. His way of dealing with the idiot politicians, and the occasional military moron as well, can best be described as steamrolling over them.

Very enjoyable read and, although perhaps a bit surprising at first, it didn’t disturb me that this one actually plays out before Starfire #1 time wise.
