About this title:

Synopsis:  Number five in the Carrera military science fiction series that started with A Desert Called Peace.  Miltary leader Carrera faces down a threat from progressive totalitarians and wins the freedom of his country on a frontier planet.

The Carrera saga continues with entry number five, and the sequel to Amazon Legion.  Carrera.  Relentless.  Machiavellian.  Without compunction.  Victorious.  Pity his enemies.  Be thankful he is on the side of freedom from totalitarian domination. 

On the colony planet of Terra Nova, soldier turned political leader Carrera has achieved his revenge, destroying those who killed his wife and children in a terrorist strike, and helping to establish a free country.  But Carrera’s fight is not over.

War with the Tauran Union is inevitable.  Carrera has been preparing his new country for this all-out conflict for years, intending to drive out the last vestige of foreign imperialism in Balboa, the Tauran Union Security Force.  He doesn't care that he's outnumbered one hundred to one.  He doesn't care that the Taurans are one thousand times wealthier.  A true Machiavellian, Carrera is convinced that gold cannot always find good soldiers, but that good soldiers can always find gold.  After all, his good soldiers have already found quite a bit.  Moreover, he's been preparing for the war he intends to start and fight on his own terms, while the TU has been preparing for a progressive fantasy.

But then his own government calls a halt even as the commander of the United Earth Peace Fleet, High Admiral Marguerite Wallenstein, injects a dose of realism and spine into the Tauran Union.  Any other government, giving similar orders, Carrera would overthrow without hesitation.  But this is his own creation; he must follow these orders.

But  the Taurans are provoking Balboa mercilessly, and Carrera knows that sooner or later, he must fight—only now the task will be more difficult and more bloody.  No matter.  When that time comes, Carerra knows he will do whatever it takes to win.  He is, after all, Carrera.
