Tactics of Mistake by Gordon R. Dickson

It's obvious that Cletus Graeme--limping, mild-mannered scholarly--doesn't belong on a battling field, but instead at a desk working on his fourth book on battle strategy and tactics. But Bakhalla has more battlefields than libraries, and Graeme sees his small force of Dorsai--soldiers of fortune--as the perfect opportunity to test his theories. But if his theories or his belief in the Dorsai lead him astray, he's a dead man.

Read where it all began for the Dorsi.

I have read this series for 45 years. A favorite, always thought provoking. Especially in times such as these...

Nice duel between the first true Dorsai and the unifier of the Earth blocks. Interesting military details, which is what you expect from Dorsai. Not as good of characterization a in some of Dickson's other stories.

Along with "The Outposter" this is one of the finest books out there. Especially in the Dorsai genre. I have bought nearly everything Gordon put out and have never been disappointed.

Three men to a team. Two teams to a squad. Four squads to a Group with a Junior or Senior Groupman in charge. Two Groups make up a Force, with a Force leader in charge. Five Forces are a Command. If you want more details - READ THE BOOK!
