Paying the Piper (Hammer's Slammers Series)

Paying the Piper (Hammer's Slammers Series) - I really don't know why I read Hammer's Slammers books. I mostly love David Drake, and guess I keep hoping that these will reach the standards of his better books, and every time I'm disappointed. It's basically just a litany of death and destruction, without character development or even much plot. I love action as much as (well, more than...) the next guy, but every Hammer's Slammers novel is identical except for the names.
