This installment has platoon sergeant Andrew Grayson promoted to 2nd lieutenant for his heroic effort to save earth from a Lanky invasion after it was abandoned by the President and a major portion of the fleet soon after the Lanky appearance. He is given command of a ground force to, ostensibly, run reconnaissance on the small moon where the deserters have relocated. The goal is to provide enough intelligence to a follow-on invasion force who will be tasked to recover the stolen fleet so that a counter invasion can be mounted against the Lanky who now occupy Mars.
The story then unfolds in a somewhat predictable manner as they pursue their mission. Orders change, skirmishes ensue, several close encounters occurs and eventually, they win the day.
Other than the overall repetitive nature of the story, the author's writing is still easy to follow and the narration is still very good.

Pretty good addition to the series. Quite slow during the middle portion but it has a good ending. Should have been combined with next installment in series. Overall worth a credit.
