ad copy_ Men of War
Andrew Keane’s Union army, along with soldiers whose ancestors from medieval Russia and classical Rome were also transported to this planet, have barely recovered from their last battle when the Horde mounts another assault. This has now become a war of annihilation: either humans or the Hordes will survive, but not both. Together with the Chin, liberated by the human army, Andrew, his fellow commander Hans Schuder and their men fight this war with desperate intensity.
Great battle scenes as well as private, often contemplative moments, as both human and the Horde leaders share thoughts with their friends or allies. Fans of Forstchen’s ONE SECOND AFTER will love this tale of survival and courage.
