Charles Sasser has written many books, but this is his debut book for the History Channel Series SIX. Mr. Sasser has written military history books and is a former Green Beret. I have not watched the television series, to compare the two, but the book was well written. It was fast paced, some military terms were used, but minimally. Many other military action novels rely so heavily on military terms that they have a glossary that you must keep referring to, interrupting the story. It wasn’t necessary for this book. It is a work of fiction but is a good representation of how Special Forces units work and interact with each other. It does contain violence but probably average for the genre. One warning, if you like endings don’t get this one. The book leaves you hanging so you will have to read the second book in the series.
