Big Red by Damien Larkin
We have always been here...
Traumatized by the effects of Compression travel, soldier Darren Loughlin holds the key to the fate of Earth’s Martian colonies. With his Battalion decimated, his fractured memory holds the only clues to the colony-wide communications blackout.
With time running out, Darren pieces together his year-long tour of duty with the Mars Occupation Force. Stationed in the Nazi-founded New Berlin colony, ruled by the brutal MARSCORP, he recounts his part in the vicious, genocidal war against the hostile alien natives and all who question Terran supremacy.
But as his memories return, Darren suspects he is at the centre of a plot spanning forty years. He has one last mission to carry out. And his alien enemies may be more human than he is…

Are you ready to journey to the red planet?
This sounds good! I have always been interested in other planets and growing up I thought I might like to live on Mars. :)
Thank you for posting about Big Red, Diane!
DMS - I was the exact same growing up!!
Mars encompasses a fascinating reality we'd love to explore and have already with a plethora of awesome books and movies. Whats different about your Big Red and Kim Stanley Robinson's Red Mars Damien?
