The Stars at War is actually three books in one volume; Insurrection, Crusade, and In Death Ground. I first read these about 10 years ago and loved them then. I have since reread them several times and they are well worth it. The story is exciting and never goes where you think it will. It is space opera on a grand scale.
Essentially what happens is that the human race has expanded to the stars through a series of warp points and they have discovered that not only is the universe not empty, it is not full of peace loving aliens singing kumbaya either. In fact, the opposite is the case, the universe is full of alien races that want to take over the same space as humans and are willing to fight for it. I will not writeÂ a full synopsis her but suffice it to say that if you pick this book up or any of it’s components and like it you will probably be hooked and be like many of the rest of us military SF fans waiting for the next work from a select group of authors like heroin addicts waiting for their next fix.
