First set in the trenches of WWI Verdun, France, we witness the brutal conditions there.
The story takes place over a span of many years, from the terrible death of a brother to a heartless application of military law to revenge. This story will leave you chilled in the time it takes to drink a cup of coffee.
This is the first story I've read by Bird; I'll be looking for his name from now on.
Speedloader is available as an eBook, I downloaded the sample of it for free from the Kindle store which included YDR. I may have to go back to purchase the whole thing just to make sure Bird gets his 10 cents in royalties. The entire anthology is 99 cents by the way.
