I was allready a fan of Mr Weabers Honner Harrington books when I read this book. I felt the premise of the book was very good. The 3rd in line to the throne of the Empire of Man a spoilt brat stranded on an alein planet, with just his bodyguards a marine company and his valet and tuter. They having to cross the planet to get the the starport. I like the why that Prince Roger grows and matures as the book progressing as he relises that these marines will sacrifeice themselves for him and the problems facing his mother are mirrored in his problems dealing with the Indigunious lifeforms and why his relationship is so difficult. I am looking forwaredf to its sequel.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first in the "Roger McLintock" series of books, and also begins the Marduk trilogy in which Prince Roger McLintock, spoilt younger son of the Empress of an interstellar empire, is stranded on the primitive planet Marduk.

The sequence of books so far in the series is:

March Upcountry
March to the Sea
March to the Stars
We Few.

The title 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. Xenophon, who was in command of the survivors by the time they got home, subsequently wrote an epic account of their story. These days it is most commonly available under the title "The Persian Expedition" but it has also been known as "The Ten Thousand" and as "Anabasis" - which means "March Upcountry".

Prince Roger, third in line to the throne of the Empire of Man, is on his way with his bodyguard to a ceremonial visit when their ship is sabotaged and damaged. As they limp to the nearest spaceport, on the largely unexplored and barbarian planet Marduk, they are jumped by two carriers from a hostile star nation,the "Saints."

Roger and a company of his bodyguard find themselves stranded, with no weapons or equipment beyond what they can carry, on the opposite side of the planet from the starport. To return home they will have to trek thousands of miles through all kinds of terrain, and cross the oceans.

Weber and Ringo make the best sci/fi adventures you could imagine,
Prince roger starts out a complete pri*k but of course he grows up and shows his true colours
This is just the tonic for those who need their military scifi with a bit of a bite.
Overall a great read with plenty of action

A trek across an alien world with only the human know how of how to survive all manner of dangers to reach an escape from the planet to journey boldly home.

A fast paced and exciting journey through an alien landscape. The characters and details are exactly what you would expect from both Weber and Ringo, well written, likeable and highly believable. Fans of either of these authors will not be disappointed with this book.
