From the Inside Flap
In the 22d century, when the Japanese ruled an interstellar empire from the Earth, an imperial task group was dispatched to put down with minimum bloodshed the three-way colonial revolt on a factory world the rebels called Suid Afrika.
Interstellar warfare is expensive, so the task group was considerably undergunned, a mix of orbiting ground-attack craft, light infantry, and logistics units. And its quality varied, from the supersharp troops of Lieutenant Colonel Anton Vereshchagin's 1st Battalion, 35th Imperial Infantry (Rifle), to the inept senior officers of the task group staff.
At first, and as usual, the fighting all went the Impis' way. Then the crafty Boers found a way to take advantage of an admiral's stupidity. All too soon, the war came down to a single battalion against a world. . .

Top Customer Reviews
Anton Vereschagin and the members of his battalion are complex characters and Robert Frezza has done an excellent job of evolving the story on the basis of the viewpoints of the main characters.
After finishing the book, I had to read it again several times to fully flush out the nuances in the opening scenes which set the context for the storyline to emerge.
This book really brought home the humor and the pain of men in the battlefield for whom going home is not really an option.
I'm not a military man myself but I could identify with several of the characters and the situations they were in.
I highly recommend this book to all fans of military SF as well as fans of military fiction in general.
I RE-READ THIS BOOK AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR AND HAVE RECOMENDED IT
TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS WHO ENJOY THE GENERA.
I REALLY WISH A FOURTH BOOK WOULD BE WRITTEN BUT THE SERIES DID END AT A LOGICAL POINT.
FREZZA IS TO GROUND COMBAT WHAT WEBER IS TO STAR NAVIES.
So whatever happened to Robert Frezza?
