Training for peace does not prepare you for war.
The Socialist Union has declared war on the Leonis Republic. The Republic knows it can't win.
The last time a large empire declared war on the smaller Republic an uneasy truce was reached. This time lines may have to be crossed that will cost the warriors their soul.
Eric Spears has big shoes to fill because he is the nephew of the great Colonel Mike Spears, hero of the Han war, but unlike his uncle he is mediocre and he has never been to war.
What none of them know is that there is something else out in the great dark. Something powerful and it is waking up to destroy Mankind's fledgling civilization.

Someone once said, "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to watch it repeat itself." The flip side of that saying is, "Those that have learned from history are doomed to watch others who haven't." This is a story which illustrates that point very clearly. The addition of high technologies is just an added bonus, written from the perspective of a man who has spent his years in the Marine Corp. It has the ring of truth to it because of the author's authentic time in service.
I hardily recommend this story to all who like and love Mil SF.
