    Bob Colby was a very uneven writer but when he was on he was excellent. He was also a hell of a nice guy. Captain is his best book. Several GM regulars tried similar novels but Colby's was the best I think because he made the war so vivid as the motive for the vengeance. This ws another book that came close to being filmed twice.
