This book is following Amazon’s strategy of re-releasing book #1 of a series for free in the idea they will hook you into buying the rest of the series. In my case it worked – I finished the first one, liked it, and bought and read the second one; I plan on buying others in the series. You can pickup your free copy by clicking here.
Here is the book description from the Amazon website:
“Marines, we have just become a low-tech deep recon patrol . . .”
Stranded in a hellish alien desert, stripped of their strategic systems, quick reaction force, and supporting arms, and carrying only a day’s water ration, Marine Staff Sergeant Charlie Bass and his seven-man team faced a grim future seventy-five light-years from home. The only thing between his Marines and safety was eighty-five miles of uncharted, waterless terrain and two thousand bloodthirsty savages with state-of-the-art weapons in their hands and murder on their minds.
But the enemy didn’t reckon on the warrior cunning of Marines’ Marine Charlie Bass and the courage of the few good men who would follow him anywhere–even to death. . .
“HARD TO PUT DOWN . . . Any book written by Cragg and Sherman is bound to be addictive, and this is the first in what promises to be a great adventure series. FIRST TO FIGHT is rousing, rugged, and just plain fun.”
–Ralph Peters, New York Times bestselling author of Red Army
