Book Description

Jan. 1 2005 The Bolo Series
Controlled by their tireless electronic brains which were programmed to admit no possibility of defeat, the gigantic robot tanks known as Bolos were almost indestructible, and nearly unstoppable. Their artificial intelligences were designed to make them selflessly serve and protect humans throughout the galaxy and made each Bolo the epitome of the knight sans peur et sans reproche, and often far more noble than the humans who gave them their orders. Now, David Weber, New York Times best-selling author of the Honor Harrington series, continues the history of the Bolo, in four short novels, one of them published here for the first time. One Bolo is driven over the edge by the very humans it is pledged to protect. Another Bolo must decide whether or not to disobey when it is given an order that constitutes genocide. A third must hunt one of its own kind whose robot brain is damaged and rescue two children which the deranged Bolo thinks it is protecting from a nonexistent enemy. And more, including David Weber's own authoritative technical history of the Bolo, all in a volume that will be irresistible both for David Weber's huge readership and Bolo fans everywhere.

Product Description

From Booklist

Honor Harrington's creator is gaining new honors by taking a leading role in continuing the late Keith Laumer's best-known creation, a saga about the sentient tanks known as Bolos. In "Miles to Go," one of this book's four stories, a long-obsolete Bolo repels a mercenary invasion of a harmless agricultural colony. "The Traitor" is a Bolo who dies defending some refugee children, though they urge their protector to save himself. "A Time to Kill" is straightforward, high-intensity combat sf set on a planet of the alien Melchorians; it's undoubtedly the hardest piece to get into and the most exhausting to finish. In "With Your Shield," the Bolos have evolved to the point that they can mediate peace between humans and Melchorians, then set up on their own. Weber may not be the best sf hand at action, characterization, or hardware, but he is well to the forefront in combining those three elements into a seamless, highly readable fabric. Roland Green

5.0 out of 5 stars The real cost of total war. Sept. 19 2013
By Sabre
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is one of my "truly great books". A series of stories that builds to a sudden understanding that "Total War" destroys everything for both, or all, parties involved. Highly recommend!!! I've read a lot of Weber, and I think this is his masterpiece.
