Book 3: STEEL GAUNTLET; Del Rey Books. The first two novels in the series followed the Marines of 34th FIST on small unit actions. This one has them involved in a brief but large and bloody war -- against armor. Dan and I have gotten some very enthusiastic responses from readers. This book was a Locus magazine bestseller, a Barnes and Noble/B. Dalton bestseller, and a Waldenbooks bestseller.
