Checkout my Goodreads review:

First published in 1951 this details the exploits of a young man caught in a war of independence of the Venus colony from earth.

For me this is a book worth re-reading. On the one-hand it’s a science fiction story that lacks the cynicism and pessimism found in many more recent SF stories. On the otherhand it also gives a glimpse of the thoughts of scientists in the 1950s about Venus as a planet (a tropical jungle world, likely teaming with life) rather than the high pressure, searing hot planet we know it to be today. It’s interesting to see how wrong scientists can be about a world until a probe actually lands there.

If you enjoy action-packed space stories, filled with optimism and hope, I think you would enjoy this book as I did.
