"you're killin' me, Smalls"
every day I check...nuthin. I wish you weren't so good. I wouldn't miss your work so much.

I was so hoping for the next chapter by now. It seems like a very long time since the last one. Please don't abandon this story when it is so close to an end. Your writing is so wonderful and I'm sure your ending chapter will be the same.

Well, thank you for all the time you spent on this work. It was much enjoyed by your many fans. You have a gift and nailed the characters and the universe. While the sympathetic characters were the obvious heart of the story I was especially impressed with the texture you brought to the story's two villians, the torturer and the weather. The torturer was multidimensional, and the interaction between him and Cage was revealing. The role played by nature (and I am not discounting pine cones) was also well developed and provided tension in several chapters. The only weakness to be found was usually in spoken syntax or references more coherent in our time than the characters, and those were few and easily overlooked. All in all a major contribution has been made to the Combat fan fiction library.

This has been an awesome ride and since I can't write, I appreciate the time and effort that goes into it. That said, I have to add that this has definitely cured me of reading works in progress. Just can't take it

Type your review for this chapter here
I just read the latest reviews and it seems I'm not the only one looking for more. I check the number of chapters every now and then hoping to see a 29! (or even more)

I know that all your multitude of fans are awaiting the end of your great tale. They want the end, but of course they want it to go on. All things end. Perhaps an epilogue would be
Appropriate. This last chapter was so telling about Hanley.
Again, thank you.

I didn't review by the Chapter because I was anxious to get to the next Chapter...This is an amazingly good story, well written...I love both characters... though the Lieutenant has always been my favorite. I posted not long ago that the Lieutenant would go through hell in gasoline drawers (an old saying) for Saunders... this story validates that for both of them...and for Caje. This has been the first time I have read your work, Donna told me about it and gave me the link... it certainly won't be the last. You weave a story magnificently... Thank you... Iris Motley

Just reread the last 10 chapters again. Um, at the risk of being a pain, could you do another chapter? Please?

Very realistic story. The closeness of soldiers who served together is impossible to break. As the daughter of a World War II vet, I appreciate the time you have taken to write about the brave men who served in that terrible war (and any other). Love the relationships between Hanley, Saunders, and Caje.

Ch.28. Hanley's lack of self esteem is part of him. The patrol going wrong was not his fault. None of his men would ever suffer from it. There were hints of it during the tale. As the dr. Said it was below the courage and caring for those he was in charge of.

Had trouble posting a review. Had to go back to chapter 1 to make it work.
For chapter 28:
If Hanley has low self esteem it must be temporary because the patrol went so wrong or else he puts up a good front. There would probably be deep psychological implications for the squad members involved. Even the doctor in the chapter suffers PTSD. My Grandfather was a CB in the Pacific Theater. Since they had heavy equipment they were called on to bury the mass casualties. He woke up screaming for some time after the war and rarely talked about it. Wars ruin lives in so many ways. Sad they still occur.

Your portrayal of Dr Hamilton is brilliant. Commpassion
And insight all rolled into one. He reads Hanley like a book.
There were hints here and there of his lack of self esteem.
This is a great chapter showing the care that the medical
staffs gave to all wounded in that war.

I really enjoyed this chapter and am looking forward to Sarge waking up. I can't wait to see what happens between him and Hanley, and also his interaction with Caje, who is a bundle of pent-up emotion. So looking forward to seeing how Sarge moves forward after this horrific experience. Great story!
