The book's title tells you and gives you the idea of what the book is going to be about. When you listen to the book it's anything but. The information does not pertain to the subject matter and at times I found it extremely frustrating. Long gaps in silence from bad editing make you have to check the audible book to see if it's even still playing. It's a good thing this book was free otherwise I would be asking for my money back.

I like the universe that the story is told in but I do not totally like the way it's being told. This book really has a racist Viewpoint of the character that is not needed to tell the story. the story is good enough to get past this but only barely. I'll have to think hard about whether or not I go to book for.

A frantic build-up of forces has begun, but the task is hopeless. Seeking allies, Earth's legions are sent to Blood World. A planet on the fringe of known space, where the people only respect masters of combat. Earth's Legions must impress them, but other alien powers have been invited to join the contest. The prize consists of billions of loyal troops - Earth must win.

The Galactics arrived with their Battle Fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined a vast Empire that spanned the Milky Way. Today, Battle Fleet 921 is returning to Earth. It hasn't been seen by human eyes since our blissful day of Annexation. But what should be a joyful occasion, a chance to grovel at the feet of superior lifeforms, is rapidly becoming a nightmare.

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.
