Overview

The Fleet — Pledged to Protect Us All!

World-crushing war rages between the human/alien Alliance and the predatory Khalians. Led by courageous pilots and marines from all corners of the galaxy, the Alliance Fleet retaliates with blinding force to reclaim conquered worlds, repell invading forces, and destroy enemy strongholds.

But a ruthless Khalian counter-attack backed with new, more powerful weapons slows the Fleet’s advance to a mutually slaughterous stalemate. Only a decisive victory can break the deadlock. For the men and women of the Fleet, it’s now or never ... time to DO OR DIE ...

It's time to BREAK THROUGH!

Meet the Author

The Army took David Drake from Duke Law School and sent him on a motorized tour of Viet Nam and Cambodia with the 11th Cav, the Blackhorse. He learned new skills, saw interesting sights, and met exotic people who hadn’t run fast enough to get away.

Dave returned to become Chapel Hill’s Assistant Town Attorney and to try to put his life back together through fiction making sense of his Army experiences.

Dave describes war from where he saw it: the loader’s hatch of a tank in Cambodia. His military experience, combined with his formal education in history and Latin, has made him one of the foremost writers of realistic action SF and fantasy. His bestselling Hammer’s Slammers series is credited with creating the genre of modern Military SF. He often wishes he had a less interesting background.

Dave lives with his family in rural North Carolina.
