Outnumbered ten to one, Confederation forces under Lieutenant-Colonel Dona Graham must successfully defend the planet Denebola-Seven from a dastardly and unprovoked invasion of Unfriendly Forces, acting on behalf of the Mining Worlds and the Conglomerate.
Called up from a teaching position at the Staff College, Dona’s mission is a simple one. It is to maintain a military, economic and political presence on the planet for as long as possible. To win would also be helpful.
Having written a textbook called Tactics of Delay, there is no better time, no better place, to put her theory to the test. This is the field of battle and the Confederation soldier is one of the best-educated soldiers in the Galaxy.
A full-length novel, military science-fiction of the distant future.
