Paying the Piper

David Drake, Author Baen Books $24 (368p) ISBN 978-0-7434-3547-5
Proponents of military solutions to political failures would do well to learn the lesson that David Drake has been teaching in his saga of Hammer's Slammers, a futuristic mercenary tank regimental combat team: every soldier on the ground is a de facto policy maker whose interests may differ drastically from the outcome intended by the initiators of the solution. In Paying the Piper, a young subaltern finds himself confused and conflicted between his responsibilities to his troops, his unit and the people for whom he is fighting when their backers prove unworthy of his loyalty.
