I liked this collection, probably because it didn't have Ennis's typical Punisher tropes (see here). Instead it is a story that has been building involving a group of generals that have been deep in very shady actions who decide to deal with their vigilante problem by sending Delta force after The Punisher. The tale deals with concepts of honor and loyalty and the decline in American values (and I'm not talking BS like letting gays in the military, although there are a lot more long haired guys in Ennis's special forces than I would figure). It was a solid tale of deceit and revenge. See what happens, Ennis, when you give up on cliches?
