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.

Dorsai tells a story about a man is unique in his intelligence and abilities. He is from a world where people are mercenaries and have a code of honor and higher themselves to other planets as elite soldiers. By smart thinking, tactical genius, and strength, he elevates himself in power and becomes a hero. There are multiple worlds, space flight and fights, politics and power struggles. I enjoyed following the main character on his journey through his life. However, it got a little strange and hard to follow when the author went on about genes and these strange super abilities. There was a feeling of something missing at times and the book jumps around strangely. The ending lost a star for me as well. I was looking forward to the next book, but I am not sure anymore.
