This omnibus collects all the John Christian Falkenberg novels. It consists of: Falkenberg’s Legion Prince of Mercenaries Go Tell the Spartans Prince of SpartaThe story ranges from the fall of the CoDominium to the rise of Sparta and the First Empire of Man that replaces it. However the macro story takes a backseat to the battles.This is solid military SciFi. However, the fact that the first two novels are in fact lashups of earlier works set to a common frame gives the whole story a somewhat [...]
The capstone of the Aldersonverse, this brings together just about all of Pournelle's CoDominium Era fiction into one place. It is quite likely what, in its component version, what got me into mil-SF in the first place. Pournelle having seen the elephant, it had the ring of reality to it even when I was reading parts as a preteen, and now as retired military I recognize things I know from experience. The only thing wrong with it is that despite decades of begging the good Dr Pournelle, he's stil [...]
This is a collection of all 4 books in the series, and I believe it has some additional material. If you can, read this series in this book form. And it's a fine series, if you like space, and battles, and warfare. And good characters.
Old school military sf at its best. It starts out quite disjointed as this is a whole bunch of short stories, novellas and novels stuck together, but get past the first third and it's a very enjoyable read in an interesting universe.

Excellent books in this omnibus
This is actually several novels and I think a novella or two combined. The combonation of social commentary and hard science fiction is an absorbing read.
Old school speculative literature which really focuses on creating a fictional world with a clearly expressed set of rules and problems and then asking: what if?
1100+ pages, quite the time investment.
Great set of books.
Damn good military sf.
The quality of the series contained in this book lowers considerably with the addition of a second author, S. M. Stirling.
