I liked the book for what it is, and what it purports to be. Anyone wishing it to be something else, well, their disappointments are noted here. I liked the touching upon vessels for salvage purposes (having run and wirtten for the TNE-1248 era where recovery/ salvage is a key undertaking--groundside or in space).
Nice to see Corsair vessels larger than 400dtons, and packing a few fighters to bolster their raiding capability! Good stuff Mongoose!
