Publisher Description

They were the toughest fighters in the galaxy-until they got used up. The mission: redemption-or death. The troops were walking dead already,so there wasn't much of a downside. Major Arthur Farrell and the troops of Strike Force Company C41 had seen too much war with the alien Kalendru. They had too many screaming memories to be fit for combat again, but they were far too dangerous to themselves and others to be returned to civilian life.The bureaucracy that administered human affairs arranged a final mission with the same ruthless efficiency as it conducted the war against the Kalendru. C41 would guard a colony being sent to a hell planet. If the troops succeeded, they might be ready to return to human society. When the mission went horribly wrong, Art Farrell and his troops found their lives on the line as never before, protecting civilians to whom bureaucratic injustice was a new experience. And there was one more thing...A story of soldiers and civilians,of hope and, possibly, redemption. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Playing to relax ,

Very well written.

More besides military but mostly military. This is the story of a long trek on an actively hostile alien planet. The Trekkers are a contingent of involuntary colonists and what is left of a military group of individuals who have gone beyond burnout and PTSD; these last are the redliners. The redliners have been ordered to guard the civilians in hopes of restoring the soldiers.
Of course there are lots of battles, lots of guns, lots of death. The environment is interesting. I can't make a general recommendation because this type of book leaves me feeling tired and sad but, if this is your kind of fiction, this is a very good choice.
