    1. Great and fun scifi - by now I felt the ideas were starting to get thin just how many different military tactics could he play out and did it all make sense but it does in this volume. As far as I knew - and perhaps then it was so - this is where it all finished up


    2. The human galactic federation is in ruins, and the worlds have devolved to various levels of barbarism. On the planet Bellevue, which is at about the early nineteenth century in development, a young officer named Raj Whitehall and his friend venture into the catacombs under the capital. There, they find an ancient battlecomputer named Center. With Center’s help, Raj must unite the planet and enable humanity to retake the stars. The story is at least somewhat based on that of the Byzatine gener [...]


    3. I was looking for something uncomplicated and this definitely was. Unfortunately it went beyond uncomplicated and entered into boring. Several hundred years after the fall of the Galactic Federation, the planet Bellvue has descended to a 17th-18th Century technology level and is divided by warring tribes. Unknown to everyone, a battle computer is still running underground waiting for someone that can unite the battle and begin rebuilding the Federation. Of course that someone appears and Raj Whi [...]


    4. Wow, I really enjoy this series, and this author. Solid characters, decent villains, plenty of action, exciting story. I don't read much "war/battle" fiction, but this is just very good stuff. The only series that might be better is The Lost Regiment series by Forstchen. But this is a wonderful set.


    5. A satisfying end to the series. I think Stirling's choice for the last scene was in many ways a very good choice. But I admit to wanting just a little bit more. I would really liked to have seen (view spoiler)[Raj and his Companions deChair Barholm (hide spoiler)].



    6. The series is beginning to become tiresome to me. It's the same thing over and over and I am losing interest in the characters.
