Bernd Struben presents a riveting tale of an endless battle for
Galactic domination with the ultimate survival of the Human Race as
the prize. Struben blends science fiction with science fact, and
military topics with humanistic concerns, with a skill worthy of
Robert A. Heinlein or Orson Scott Card. For twelve hundred years
humanity has raced against the alien Pfrlanx to secure the galaxy's
last habitable planets at any cost. Humanity's Soldiers - the
Augmented Combat Personnel - are bioengineered to be the finest
warriors Earth has ever known. They are kept in stasis for years on
end, awakened only to fight for new ground. Using overwhelming
military might, the ACP brutally subdue the inhabitants of each new
planet prior to human settlement. The Pfrlanx alternative is far
worse, as the alien conquerors methodically eradicate each world's
population before moving in. When the inhabitants of a remote
planet 40 years from the nearest military Staging Area refuse to
surrender despite staggering losses, the ACP Soldiers are forced to
contemplate Pfrlanx-style genocide. With the fate of billions in
his hands, veteran commander Brink D'Mar desperately searches for
other options. But time is running out.
