Great concept for the story, telling the battle from the perspective of someone on Earth. A couple of spelling errors here and there, but other than that very well written. I liked the description of the orbital stations as "wheels of death".

I really like the concept of watching an orbital battle from the ground. The "Terran Federation" is a nice shout out to Starship Troopers, and the kid's apparent conditioning is nothing less than creepy. Very good read.

I liked it. Very vivid imagery. I presume Thompson's Youth is a reference to the Hitler Youth.

Damn! A nice chilling piece on war and brainwashing. Brainwashed child soldiers is definitely a nasty bit of real world history also still around in your dystopian future. The swapping back and forth of the battle and the boy on the ground was awesome.

I think it's pretty good. Good details. very poetic.

'Like fine jewels scattered by a careless princess' - perfectly worded.

In 'A seagull hooted sleepily in the distant', I think you meant 'distance'.

Anyhow, this was fascinating. You painted an entire world in such a short piece. I loved that last line.

Excellently written.
