Publisher's Summary

Roger Ramius Sergei Chiang MacClintock was young, handsome, athletic, an excellent dresser, and third in line for the Throne of Man. So it wasn't surprising that he became spoiled, self-centered, and petulant. After all, what else did he have to do with his life? But that was before his mother, the empress, packed him off to a backwater planet and he found himself shipwrecked on the planet Marduk, with jungles full of damnbeasts, killerpillars, carnivorous plants, and barbarian hordes of bad disposition. Fortunately, Roger had an ace in the hole: Bravo Company of Bronze Battalion of the Empress' Own Regiment. Now all Roger has to do is hike halfway around the planet, capture a spaceport from the Bad Guys, commandeer a starship, and go home.

Lots of fun!

If you have ever read anything by David Weber then you already know the characters, plot and conclusion. I don't mean that as a criticism, because I loved these stories. But if you are looking for high literature, insightful social commentary or a 'visionary' new story... this is not what you're looking for. If you want adventure and escapism dressed in military sci-fi clothing, by all means buy the entire series- In fact, buy everything the man has ever written because that's exactly what he writes. It's brain candy, and there is nothing wrong in indulging in mindless fun now and again.

Weber Ringo team a pure winner!!

This David Weber and John Ringo collaboration really sets the bar for modern military SF. Kind of a "Hemingway -esk" main theme with an immature fop learning manhood from an older and wiser man. Great battle scenes and interestingly believable situations. This series got me rolling on John Ringo books like the Posleen War series, note to Audible, we need these in audiobook form... and led to my blazing through most of David Webers work. Honestly, this one is well worth your time. Can we give 10 stars? Well done David and John, thanks for the ride!!
