In this military science fiction series, of which this is book two, we have the legendary Legionnaires as our protagonists.

Humanity had defeated the Hudathan fleet and taken prisoners. It seemed only poetic justice to place them on Worbers World which they had devastated. Now 20 years on, something is happening on Worbers World.

The Hudathans rise again and the War starts again. New technology on both sides presents challenges all around. Humanity has a secret weapon, but are unsure whether it can work.

Battles in space and on Algeron proceed at a fast pace.

Characters are fully developed, plots; and sub-plots flow as Dietz spins his tale.

Characters are well developed and the multiple minor story lines bubble along and eventually merge with the overall story.

Lots of good military battles, as well as political ones.

Dietz ranks right up there with Ian Douglas and Jack Campbell in military science fiction.

This is book two of a series which I know I am going to enjoy reading the rest.

Be sure to check this series out, you will not be disappointed

Thirty years ago, as recorded in William C. Dietz's earlier novel Legion of the Damned, the Human Empire managed, thanks to the remarkable legionnaires and in particular the cyborgs in its ranks, to overthrow a corrupt and ineffective imperial government and defeat the powerful space fleet of the aggressive Hudathans. Admiral Poseen-Ka and thousands of his defeated soldiers were imprisoned on Worber's World, and mega-merchant turned hero Sergi Chien-Chu, the new leader of the victorious empire (now organized as the Confederacy of the Sentient) did not pursue a murderous assault on the Hugathan home world. This was a mistake. The Hugathans see any intelligent life form as a threat to their survival, a threat that must be eliminated. Their bitter defeat only strengthened their resolve, and they used what they had learned in the first war to prepare for the new offensive against the Confederacy. A major part of the new game plan involved the implementation of their own cyborg army, and the best and brightest of the Hudathan soldiers were given the honor of being killed and resuscitated in the metallic form of the Regiment of the Living Dead.
The Final Battle is a great read, but it does have its weaknesses. It takes a while to get into the novel, as we are reintroduced to a few major characters from the earlier book, men and women who are to some degree shadows of their old selves, and newly introduced to new heroes such as the half-human, half-Naa son of the famous William Booly. The young Booly eventually matures into an interesting character, but his role seems to fade as the ultimate conflict approaches; indeed, many important characters and plot points seem to fall away as the end approaches.
