Ramsay is a man twice born, a man who has returned from the hell of the battle-grave at Passchendaele in World War I decorated with the Victoria Cross, and destined to be caught in a no-man's-land where memory, history and myth collide. As Ramsay tells his story, it begins to seem that from boyhood he has exerted a perhaps mystical, perhaps pernicious influence on those around him. His apparently innocent involvement in such innocuous events as the throwing of a snowball or the teaching of card tricks to a small boy proves, in the end, neither innocent nor innocuous. The first novel in the celebrated Deptford Trilogy, Fifth Business stands alone as the remarkable story of a rational man who discovers that the marvelous is only another aspect of the real
A hymn before battle by John Ringo( )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the Earth in the path of the rapacious Posleen, the peaceful and friendly races of the Galactic Federation offer their resources to help the backward Terrans--for a price. Humanity now has three worlds to defend. As Earth's armies rush into battle and special operations units scout alien worlds, the humans begin to learn a valuable lesson: You can protect yourself from your enemies, but may the Lord save you from your allies. "John Ringo's first novel has bad guys from the wrong side of Hell, 'good guys' you wouldn't buy a used car from, heroism, cowardice, military stupidity and genius, millennia-old plots, Leopard tank versus plasma cannon, and a kick-butt suit of powered armor. It's a marvelous book, and the galactic neighborhood will never be the same once the monkey-boys and girls from Earth get done with it." --David Weber, author of the New York Times bestselling Honor Harrington series

Gust front by John Ringo( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
