Short stories of varying interest, but all of moderately good quality. Different viewpoints, although carry a primary burden or sub-text of "warriors who hate war". Most are thinly disguised futures -- given the time jumps posited, the methods and weapons would be to us as we are to the Greeks and Romans, but the milieus are recognizable (name-droppingly so). On the other hand, our military schools still teach about the classics (I think), so maybe it's not so anachronistic as it seems.
My favorite was the last story, "Toy Soldiers" because it wasn't really about war at all.
Longyear's "Bifrost Crossing" is perhaps the most bizarre, with its time- and place-shifts and intersection with Norse mythology. "Faith on Ice" had an interesting punch ending, but was too milfic-jargon heavy for my taste. Rusch indulges in an improbably moral conversion of a terrorist. The rest were okay, but not memorable (I know this because I read it once before, and only remembered "Bifrost" after starting it again.). ( )
