If I was going to recommend non-Honor D*v*d W*b*R, I would recommend
_Path of the Fury_, and the trilogy starting with _Mutineers' Moon_ as
well as the John Ringo collaborations _March Upcountry_ and _March to
the Sea_. They at least had intersting twists and characters. While I
found the first collaboration with Steve White (_Insurrection_) mildly
interesting, I thought the other too were generic military SF with
nothing special about them at all. While I managed to slog through
_Crusade_, I failed to make it past halfway of _In Death Ground_
thankfully saving me the expense of purchasing _The Shiva Option_.
