The novels in this volume were originally published separately as "March to the Stars" and "We Few"
The four novels which originally made up the series are: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 first two novels in the series have been republished in a companion volume to this one with the title "Empire of Man"
The title of the original first book and some of the ideas for the series are a homage to Xenophon's "The Persian Expedition" which told 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.Read more ›
