Book about mercenaries and space travel

Postby damonrae » Sun Nov 05, 2006 1:12 am

From what I remember was a series of books early 80's. About vietnam era mercenaries being abducted by aliens and transported to a medievil planet. Rackin my brains and coming up with nothing.

I don't think it was the same ones, it had Company in the title and was a series like Mack Bolan. But I'll be sure to read the Pornelle novels now :)

There's a great book by Edger Pangborne titled "Company of Glory" but the plot is nothing like the one you describe, which is the plot of Jannissaries and its sequels.
This is the race that will rule the sevagram!

May be this: Doomfarers of Coramonde by Brian Daley. Here's a partial review from Amazon:" armored personnel carrier yanked out of the jungles of Southeast Asia to finish off said dragon, complete with her crew, led by Sgt. Gil A. MacDonald.."
