The Hammers Slammer's story Choosing Sides also appears in the David Drake 3-story anthology "Paying the Piper" A good story, but not worth buying twice. Bummer. I really wish ALL of the Hammer's stories were on Audible rather than semi-secret repeats of some of them.
The Honor Harringon story goes 5 hours and almost nothing happens the entire time. Unless you like stories about military office politics skip it.
Flint's Belisarius story was entertaining enough to make me look into the series from which it's spun. Also the dual narrator scheme makes use of the "audible" in a nice way. So...I guess I don't feel like the entire credit went to waste.

I remember the Honor's Middy cruise from Change Of Worlds, but enjoyed it a second time. The other two stories in the book were also interesting and enjoyable.
Eric Flint's story about General Belisarius brought a female hero in Calopodius's wife. She creates her own corps helping out the medical hospitals, getting them cleaned up and proper people caring for the soldiers while traveling from Constantinople to India to join her husband. The third story by Dave Drake is a short story of Hammer's Slammers. A mercenary army hired by Cities Co-op to protect them from another city on a plant.
Because they are short stories the action and suspense is more intense. All the narrators did a good job.
