Doesn't Pass Muster

Out of 14 stories in this anthology, we recommended zero (average would be 2.5) and we recommended against six (average would be 4.5). This makes it far below the average quality for magazines and anthologies we reviewed in 2016. Basic writing problems and issues with believability were the commonest problems. 

The eight three-star stories had solid writing but generally weak plots and/or weak characters. Those who really love military SF and really enjoy the battle scenes but aren't are concerned about plot or characters might still enjoy those stories.
