Notes: I've never read much of sci-fi's Harry Harrison, so when I saw this freebie on Amazon a while back, I thought it time to give him a proper try.
Mini review: The winner of a planetary contest that involves all matters of skills and combat training goes off to try and save another planet from being destroyed by its own suicidal leaders intent upon war with a neighboring planet. The novel came out in 1962 and it reads that way, but it's still a pretty fun adventure read that keeps the tension high up to the very last moment, and even beyond. Fans of '60s sci-fi should appreciate this one.
