Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Captain John “Black Jack” Geary’s legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic “last stand” in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance Fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndic.

Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance’s one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic “Black Jack” legend...

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Fallen Fleet 17 de julio de 2006
Por Mel Odom - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Libro de bolsillo
Captain John "Black Jack" Geary received his field promotion after everyone thought he'd died in battle. Instead, he'd been in suspended animation for a hundred years when he was found and revived. During that century of warfare that passed, the Alliance struggled against the Syndic, falling prey to the same kind of methodology employed against them by their enemy. Promoted to Fleet Commander after a Syndic betrayal, Geary wants to save as many of his people as he can. Boldly, he begins a campaign that will strand them light-years from home, with the only way back through enemy-held territory. If the Alliance had been the same Alliance he had died for, the chances would be slim. But now the Alliance is a shadow of its former self, no longer a competent force, broken down into segments of selfish officers who won't take orders.

Jack Campbell is the pseudonym for an accomplished SF author. THE LOST FLEET: DAUNTLESS is the first book in a new series.

The authors handling of the military is pitch-perfect. He knows the rules and regs, and he conveys the feeling of battle and being under fire really well. More than the sheer action, move and counter-move, though, he also understand the politics of running a large force and dealing with the enemy in an honorable fashion. The "science" that he's set up to deal with his universe is intact and he adheres to it. Not only do readers learn that the rules of engagement do allow mercy to an enemy, but also that anything over .1 light-speed leaves every other starcraft blurred and in uncertain positions. The military and scientific applications of the story, dealing with honor and command as well as real physics regarding how fast light travels, come across as real. For a science fiction author, it doesn't get any better than that.

Geary's character is a little thin, as is the whole background of the Alliance and the Syndic. Hopefully future installments will illuminate a little more of what Geary gave up, where he came from, and what the societies are like -- other than just opponents.

Readers who enjoyed Robert Heinlein's STARSHIP TROOPERS, Joe Haldeman's FOREVER WAR, John Ringo's Posleen novels and John Scalzi's OLD MAN'S WAR will enjoy THE LOST FLEET: DAUNTLESS.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Original and Fun 4 de julio de 2006
Por N. Burt - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Libro de bolsillo
I picked up this book and read the back cover and thought well that sounds different. I was not disappointed. The book is original in that it is military sci-fi with character development and growth. Black Jack Geary's thoughts as he trying to adjust to his new surrounds are amusing and totally in character. This book not only has great space battles and a 100 year war, but interesting characters that are more than military automatons. This is a full and interesting world I look forward to reading more about.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The Burdens of Leadership 21 de abril de 2007
Por J. Brian Watkins - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Libro de bolsillo
I was very impressed with this book. The highest praise I can give this book is that it is worthy of the comparison to the Hornblower series of C.S. Forester. It is the study of a leader who improbably finds himself thrust into a future war where the highly-developed tactics and strategies of space war have been lost owing to the severe attrition in the officer's ranks. It is a Rip Van Winkle tale of a man who must now live in the world of those who would be as old as his grandchildren and finds that much of the honor and discipline of his fighting force has been cast aside of seeming necessity.

Our leader, John "Black Jack" Geary has been picked up after drifting in space for over a hundred years. His exploits in the battle that stranded him are now legendary. Therein lies the unique power of this book--it allows the study of a character with all of the skills to be a fine leader who is unexpectedly thrust into a situation where suddenly he holds all the power and is forced to retrain an entire navy. What does he do? What are the effects of his virtually unlimited power?

The author takes every opportunity to teach the reader the value of discipline and military honor. It is this strong moral undertone that gives the book its power. It is far better than most books of its genre; indeed, this is the first author I have ever encountered who deals with relativistic effects in his portrayal of space battles.

Yet make no mistake, this isn't about battles. This is about a man who is in a position to lead and how he goes about persuading others to follow him. Fascinating five-star stuff.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas I Really Liked this Book 14 de junio de 2007
Por Nicholas Doles - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Libro de bolsillo
This isn't a complex space opera full of twists and turns. This isn't a new epic full of multiple characters and story lines. This isn't the next great series against which all other Sci-Fi series will be measured.

What it is is an extremely enjoyable read with good plot, characters, pace, and one of the most accurate depictions of real space battles that I have ever read.

The main character is the very real, very human Jack 'Black Jack' Greary. Greary had taken part in the open engagement of a century spanning war and his actions had made him a legend. Believed to have died in the battle his life pod is discovered and Greary awakes to find himself a living legend.

Greary is a good character. He struggles with his status as the greatest warrior of his time, struggling to live up to an image that he doesn't feel he matches. The supporting cast is not as dynamic, but they're real and interesting enough, but the focus is definitely on Greary.

My favorite part of the series is the use of relativistic science. Campbell takes into account the speed that light travels in relation to figuring out where objects based on where they were when the light reaches you and where they have moved to in the interim. Communication delays are taken into account with co-ordinating millitary actions in a way I've never seen. This level of use of real science in science fiction is what really sets this apart from the rest.

Some reviews have argued against a higher rating because this isn't a complex novel or an epic saga like the Dune series. But it doesn't try to be. I couldn't wait to pick it back up when I was made to sit it down and it does what it does excellently and what it does is entertains.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Sci Fi Military History? 2 de septiembre de 2006
Por Applesauce - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Libro de bolsillo
I have just completed reading Lost Fleet: Dauntless and there is very little I can add to the previous reviews.

Jack Campbell is the pseudonym for John G.Hemry. (I recently met Hemry and the 64th Worldcon. He told me the use of the pseudonym was because book dealers do not like too many books written by a single person. Because of this many writers have to use a pseudonym for some of their works. I have read that Stephen King has done this.)

Hemry is a retired naval officer who has a strong background in history as well as science. In many of his stories there is an actual historical basis for many of the events. I am suprises that no one has caught on that this is a science fictionalization of Xenephon's Anabasis.

Some examples:

The Hero in the story does spend a great deal agonizing over his decisions. But this appears to be a faily accurate representation on what military leaders go through. For example, my father, who was an officer in the Marine Corps in World War II, frequently explained to me how his decisions effected him. This is one of the things he liked about Saving Private Ryan. He told me that in private that he frequently broke down like Captain Miller did.

The Hero intoduces new tactics to the fleet and in there first battle the enemy force is surprised and slaughtered. One can frequently find actual examples of this in history. (Crecy anyone. How long did it take the French to learn how to deal with the English longbow?)

It appears that he accurately deals with problems new general has when he takes command of a established force. One of them is dealing incompetent subordinates who got their position through politics. How long did it take Grant to weed out the losers in the Army of the Potomac when he first took command?

If a person likes military history, he should enjoy this book and its many parallels with actual military events.

Hemry told me that this is the first book in a 6 part series.
