Overview

The year is 2804 AD. Humanity has colonized the universe. But the authority of the Confederation of Human Worlds is spread thin. Where the Army of planet Earth cannot reach, mercenaries must keep the peace--and the Dirigent Mercenary Corps are the best of the best.

Lon Nolan wasn’t supposed to be serving with the DMC. He’d earned his place at the elite North American Military Academy, and he’d excelled there. But when he’s kicked out of the Academy on trumped-up charges, he’s left with no choice: join the DMC or go home.

So join he does, going from top of his class to bottom rung in the DMC. To become an officer, he’ll have to survive his first taste of combat with his new army, and if he fails, he won’t lose just his honor, but his life.

The Dirigent Mercenary Corps books are classics of military science fiction. Rick Shelley was himself a veteran of the U.S. Army, and his experience and knowledge shine through on every page.

PRAISE FOR RICK SHELLEY:

"Rick Shelley was a soldier at heart, and his books were written from the heart.  They carry the real feel of the sweat, blood, and camaraderie of those on the front lines." --Jack Campbell, author of the bestselling LOST FLEET series

    NON STOP ACTION..... A MUST READ!!!

    I must admit when I first saw this book my reaction was 'Oh Brother what now.' I am glad that I gave this book a chance. It was worth while reading. You will find yourself rooting for Cadet Lon Nolan (What a name!) has he starts his quest to become an line officer in the DMC. The battle scenes are excellent and vividly drawn out. You'll find your self right next to Lon in fight after fight, wondering what is going to happen next. I look foward to reading the rest of the on going series written by Rick Shellley. This book is a must have in your Sci-Fi Military Library. Please buy and enjoy!

    Very good read

    The crafting of the characters and not having everything turn out perfectly following skirmishes went a long way in establishing a realistic accounting. I'm looking forward to following the further adventures of Lon Nolan.
