Publisher's Summary

You're only a hero until your next battle. Legion General Bill Booly knows that peace is just a pause between wars. He's just crushed one uprising, and now a new rebellion is already brewing on a remote world light years away - spawning a web of terrorism that is close enough to catch the vulnerable Confederacy in its grasp.

Critic Reviews

"Dietz has created an intricate tapestry of local and star-faring culture with topnotch action sequences." (Publishers Weekly)
"Dietz bases this yarn on certain events of the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, especially the siege at Peking, and those familiar with the siege will have additional fun figuring out which of the novel's aliens corresponds to which of the various allies at the real-world siege. Others will simply enjoy the book as exciting military sf fare from a reliable vendor." (Booklist)
