About the Author

With over seven million copies of his books in print and seventeen titles on the "New York Times" bestseller list, David Weber is the science fiction publishing phenomenon of the new millennium. In the hugely-popular Honor Harrington series, the spirit of C.S. Forester s Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O Brian s "Master and Commander "lives on into the galactic future. Books in the Honor Harrington and Honoverse series have appeared on fourteen best seller lists, including those of "The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times," and "USA Today." While Weber is best known for his spirited, modern-minded space operas, he is also the creator of the Oath of Swords fantasy series and the Dahak saga, a science fiction and fantasy hybrid. Weber is has also engaged in a steady stream of bestselling collaborations including his Starfire Series with Steve White, which produced the "New York Times "bestseller "The Shiva Option" among others." "Weber s collaboration with alternate history master Eric Flint led to the bestselling "1634: The Baltic War, "and his planetary adventure novels with military science fiction ace and multiple national best-seller John Ringo includes the blockbusters "March to the Stars "and" We Few. "Finally, Weber s teaming with Linda Evans produced the bestselling" "Multiverse series. David Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife and children. John Ringo brings fighting to life. He is the creator of the Posleen Wars series, which has become a "New York Times"best-selling series with over one million copies in print. The series contains "A Hymn Before Battle, " "Gust Front," "When the Devil Dances," "Hell s Faire" and "Eye of the Storm." In addition, Ringo has penned the Council War series: "There Will be Dragons," "Emerald Sea," "Against the Tide," and "East of the Sun, West of the Moon." Adding another dimension to his skills, Ringo created nationally best-selling techno-thriller novels about Mike Harmon ("Ghost," "Kildar," "Choosers of the Slain," "Unto the Breach," "A Deeper Blue, "and, with Ryan Sear, "Tiger by the Tail"). His techno-thriller "The Last Centurion "was also a national bestseller. A more playful twist on the future is found in novels of the Looking-Glass series: "Into the Looking Glass," "Vorpal Blade," "Manxome Foe" and "Claws That Catch," the last three in collaboration with Travis S. Taylor. His audience was further enhanced with four collaborations with fellow "New York Times" best-selling author David Weber: "March Upcountry," " March to the Sea," "March to the Stars"and "We Few." There are an additional five collaborative spinoffs from the Posleen series: "The Hero," written with Michael Z. Williamson, "Watch on the Rhine," "Yellow Eyes" and "The Tuloriad," all written with Tom Kratman, and the "New York Times" best seller "Cally s War" and its sequels "Sister Time" and "Honor of the Clan," both with Julie Cochrane. In addition, Ringo s "Princess of Wands "and "Queen of Wands "broke new ground in contemporary fantasy adventure.

Start off with a pompous, spoilt, pain in the back side. Then chuck him, and a contingent of marines whose job is to keep him from getting the learning experience we would all like to see him get. Finally get David Weber and John Ringo to tell the story and the result is well worth the time to read. You will need to buy the final book separately though.

Not the best from either author but a good sci-fi read with many levels and engaging characters in believable quandries, finding credible solutions. Good escapism.

Another one best on Kindle though, not really for my precious hard back collection on limited shelf space. I'd call it good YA material for a fun read and on to better things soon after: Which is to say, Moon, McCaffrey, Ringo, Weber(his other stuff: Honourverse), Drake, Lee&Miller (Liaden), Lowell (Clipper), LE Modesitt, GS Paul (Helfort), Scalzi and Bujold (Vorkosigan).

"Empire of Man" by David Weber and John Ringo is a double volume which republishes the first two novels in the "Roger McLintock" quartet of military SF stories. The series tells the story of how Prince Roger McLintock, spoilt younger son of the Empress of an interstellar empire, is stranded on the primitive planet Marduk and he and his bodyguard have to fight their way across the planet to get home.

The novels in this volume were originally published separately as "March Upcountry" and "March to the Sea"

The four novels which originally made up the series are:

1) "March Upcountry"
2) "March to the Sea (Prince Roger II)
3) "March to the Stars (Prince Roger III)"
4) "We Few."

The last two novels in the series have been republished in a companion volume to this one with the title "Throne of Stars (Empire of Man)."

The title of the first book is a reference to Xenophon's "The Persian Expedition" which is the story of ten thousand" Greek mercenaries who found themselves stranded in the middle of Persia when Prince Cyrus, whose bid for the throne they had been hired to support, was killed in battle in 401 BC. They had to fight their way home through enemy territory.

I got my hopes up thinking this was a new book. It isn't it's the first two in the series, but if it tells you this in the blurb I couldn't find it. There's another one out containing the third and fourth books and it doesn't seem to mention this either. I feel I've been conned.
