Winter Duty. This is the story of Southern Command making a disaster out of Javelin.
And it is a story of David Valentine making lemonaide out of lemons.

A lot of our favorites characters are back, including the return of a character not seen since Way of the Wolf (if my memory is correct).

We once again are treated to some great action, characters, and dialogue. ( )

Valentine, licking his wounds from betrayal fights his way across Kentucky to pick up whats left of his wounded. A good balance of intrique and action makes this book very readable. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451462742, Hardcover)

The cause of freedom in Kentucky balances on a knife-edge. Major David Valentine and his fugitive battalion are all that is left of an expeditionary force shattered in its long retreat from disaster in the Appalachians. Between a raging blizzard, the remnants of the brutal and fanatic Moondaggers—bands of headhunters kidnapping entire towns to sell to the Kurians—and the need to recover wounded soldiers lost during the retreat, Valentine is in for the toughest winter of his life. And Valentine is losing allies fast. Some of the clans in the region have declared themselves in favor of the Kurians, throwing Kentucky into civil war. But the Kurian overlords have determined that the region isn’t worth the effort of another conquest. Their order: extermination. By whatever means necessary...
