Product description

John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday First he visited his wifes grave Then he joined the army The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space The bad news is that planets fit to live on are scarce-and alien races willing to fight us for them are common So we fight To defend Earth and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate Far from Earth the war has been going on for decades brutal bloody unyielding Earth itself is a backwater The bulk of humanitys resources are in the hands of the Colonial Defense Force Everybody knows that when you reach retirement age you can join the CDF They dont want young people they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living Youll be taken off Earth and never allowed to return Youll serve two years at the front And if you survive youll be given a generous homestead stake of your own on one of our hard-won colony planets John Perry is taking that deal He has only the vaguest idea what to expect Because the actual fight light-years from home is far far harder than he can imagine-and what he will become is far stranger
