New York Times best-selling series - Omnibus - March Upcountry and March to the Sea, Books 1 and 2 in the Empire of Man Series.

Roger Ramius MacClintock was young, handsome, athletic, an excellent dresser, and third in line for the Throne of Man. It probably wasn't too surprising that someone in his position should react by becoming spoiled, self‑centered, and petulant. After all, what else did he have to do with his life? Then warships of the Empire of Man's worst rivals shoot his crippled vessel out of space and Roger is shipwrecked on the planet Marduk, whose jungles are full of deadly predators and barbarian hordes with really bad dispositions. Now all Roger has to do is hike halfway around the entire planet, then capture a spaceport from the Bad Guys, somehow commandeer a starship, and then go home to Mother for explanations. Fortunately, Roger has an ace in the hole: Bravo Company of Bronze Battalion of The Empress' Own Regiment. If anyone can get him off Marduk alive, it's the Bronze Barbarians.

Note the description - this is a repackage of the first two books in the Empire of Man series. It's silly to down rate the book because you were careless. If you like Weber's work and have not already started this series, then you will probably enjoy this tale of how a spoiled prince becomes a leader while learning how to personally deserve the respect that had been given to his title. This is a ground pounder tale of infantry at work - not the navy tales of ships in space as in the Honor Harrington series. It still explores the meanings and consequences of decisions made and the values that inform them.

The person who gave it a poor rating due to "should be renamed" has an issue with B&N customer service.  Ratings are for book reviews. This series is excellent. Anyone who is a Weber fan, enjoys light military S/F, should get this series.
