Publisher's Summary

Three Masters of Military Science Fiction
Three Great Science Fiction Series:
Honor Harrinqton
Hammer's Slammers
Three Short Novels in One Volume

Before she saved the galaxy, she was ''Ms. Midshipwoman Harrington'' - New York Times best-selling author David Weber reveals how Honor Harrington's long and brilliant career began with an encounter with ''pirates'' who turned out to be much more than they seemed....
Another day, another planet at war. But in David Drake's ''Choosing Sides',' Lieutenant Huber stepped off the starship right into an ambush. The attackers didn't survive, but neither did far too many of Huber's troops - and Slammers aren't supposed to get caught in ambushes. Now, to redeem himself, Huber is being sent on a special mission that may be his last. But even so, the enemy will learn the cost of killing even a single one of Colonel Hammer's Slammers....
If the enemy thought General Belisarius was tough, wait until they meet the wife of one of his soldiers in Eric Flint's ''Island''. She was wed just before her husband left with Belisarius to fight an evil from beyond time. Now her husband is wounded, and she is going to travel a thousand miles to reach his side - and few who get in her way will live to regret it....

Disclosure needed more a than bad review

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.

Three different types of Sci Fi stories

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.
