Throughout the Fourteen Worlds of humanity, no race is as feared and respected as the Dorsai. The ultimate warriors, they are known for their deadly rages, unbreakable honor, and fierce independence. No man rules the Dorsai, but their mastery of the art of war has made them the most valuable mercenaries in the known universe. Donal Graeme is Dorsai, taller and harder than any ordinary man.

Ok This is the outline, where is the book?

I enjoy Scifi and books in series so I was hoping for a good one here. I wound up frustrated and shaking my head. It is like an outline with no details. Very little is explained enough so you can swallow it. WARNING-Spoilers ahead...So this 18 year old leaves home by himself for space for the first time, meets a prince on board the ship he is on, who puts him in charge of a force of seasoned ground fighting mercenaries who he then saves because he knows more than they do and then he has the commander of the group shot. Huh? The prince is mad, but that's ok cause the kid already has another job where where he takes 5 ships and does something that everyone said couldn't be done, so they put him in charge of a planetary force. Makes sense, right? He wins one battle on the ground and commands five ships that pretend to attack to scare a planet, so that qualifies him in to be in charge of a whole planet's army. He wins one battle, so then the make him Commander and Chief of All of the planetary armies! At that point I gave up and moved on to a much better book. oh well...I wish I had that credit back....

50's superhero

Share's review pretty much tells it. I believe this is the kind of Sci Fi that John W. Campbell pushed back when he ruled the Sci Fi world. Our hero never ever makes a mistake. He makes all the right decisions and predicts what everyone else is always going to do before they know they are going to do it. Not once but twice the higher command is all killed off and our hero takes immediate charge. Unlike some other books of this time, he has no interest in woman. Woman fall for him, but he seems to have no hormones. The moral of the story seems to be that we all need to make the right decisions.
