A tale of war which has been 25 years in the making. Struggle and conflict throughout.
Mankind develops star drive technology and shares it with another sentient species, and they stab us in the back.
The tale is told through three intertwining points of view: a historical view, a starship commander, and a front line ground pounder.
Will Jack control his rage or be consumed by it? Will he hold onto his rank and place in Fleet? Hell, will he survive? Will human beings survive?
