This book comprises parts two and three of The Moon Maid In The Moon Men the lazy, indolent moon men have taken over the Earth; the Americans begin to fight back; none too well at first. But, in The Red Hawk they finally push the moon men into the Pacific Ocean. Typical to Burroughs' books, the hero is superhuman; his foes eight foot giants (not that it does them any good). And, naturally, the hero is captured more than once (never dispatched) and easily makes his escape while wrecking havoc on the evil doers. Oh yes, along the way he manages to rescue a damsel in distress (not this dressthough, as they are habitually pictured as near naked in artists' cover renditions. In short, if you've read one Burroughs book, you know the plot of every other.
reviewed The Moon Men on
"Through the treason of a handful of men, contact between Earth and the Moon had become a nightmare. The world became the tool of the Lunarians, whose plundering and cruelty reduced thriving nations to poverty-stricken wastelands.

The Moon Men is the astounding story of that tragedy, and of the exploits of Julian, the human who dared fight for freedom. It is the story, also, of Red Hawk, Julian's descendant, the nomad who attempted to bring the struggle to its final desparate conclusion."
