The Complete Hammer’s Slammers Volume 3

This book consists of three paperbacks combined into one volume, and follows in from Volume 1 and Volume 2. I’ll cover each story separately:

  • The sharp end: this story is a little different from the other Hammer’s Slammers stuff. To be honest, its a bit less grim. Normally the stories are about how war is in the end just a bunch of guys trying to not die (for the grunts at least), whereas this story is a little bit more hopeful than that. Then again, there is still plenty of the negative side of war in this story.
  • Paying the piper: I’ve seen other people complain that this book is disjointed, which is a fair comment. Concepts are reintroduced several times, even though they’ve already been covered. I wonder if this was originally a set of short stories in a series? Its a good read however.
  • The darkness: a much shorter story, which is a lot more like the ones in Volume 1 and Volume 2.
