The sequence of books so far in the series is:
March to the Sea
March to the Stars
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.Read more ›
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

I enjoyed the four books in the series to date but felt that the conclusion of the fourth book was somewhat hurried and left a few unanswered questions.Published on 14 Mar. 2014 by Amazon Customer
I really hate being told how many damn word I have to write in a review so in future I will just use this phrase over and over again until this review policy is changedPublished on 5 Feb. 2014 by Terry Keene
Great series. Couldn't out the book down - which is odd considering it's a pulp scifi genre. Really cheers you up.Published on 17 Nov. 2013 by Amazon Customer
It's not only a great Do or Die novel, but also a cautionary tale about the dangerous path the green terrorism can take in the future. Read morePublished on 28 May 2011 by Amazon Customer
This was the first book in the series. Prince Roger is such a believable character as it is so well written. Read morePublished on 10 May 2010 by Ron Robson
