    "Contains Books #5 and #6 The Sword and The Chosen, in the best selling General series. The Empire of Man has fallen and a new Dark Age is upon the stars. With planets cut off and reduced to subsistence and ignorance, humanity has nearly forgotten its past greatness. But one battle computer has survived the Collapse. He is Center. And Center is determined to find and aid leaders who can return a star-faring republic to the galaxy. The first of these leaders is Raj Whitehall, a man born to be a general, and molded to retake civilization itself from the jaws of barbarism. The Sword For five years Raj Whitehall has led his men across the face of the planet Bellevue. With saber and bayonet he has conquered one barbarian nation after another. Now his greatest enemy is his own overlord, Barholm Clerett, who's so paranoid of Raj's victories that he is reduced to only one thought: Raj Whitehall must die. The Chosen Planted by interstellar probes on hundreds of human-occupied worlds, the downloaded personalities of Raj Whitehall and the ancient battle computer known as Center work together for planetary unity. On Visager, a nation-state of vicious militarists is about to start the final war that will bring their fatal racist infection to the stars. Now two young men once at odds in war must unite and, with the aid of the disembodied voices of their mentors from the stars, stand against exporting eternal tyranny to the galaxy itself. About the Raj Whitehall series: "[T]old with knowledge of military tactics and hardware, and vividly described action. devotees of military SF should enjoy themselves."--Publishers Weekly "[A] thoroughly engrossing military sf series. superb battle scenes, ingenious weaponry and tactics, homages to Kipling, and many other goodies. High fun."--Booklist About David Drake: "[P]rose as cold and hard s the metal alloy of a tank ... rivals Crane and Remarque ..."--Chicago Sun-Times "Drake couldn't write a bad action scene at gunpoint." -Booklist The General Series The Forge S.M.

    "Sequel omni to Hope Reborn [Baen 2013 March trade paperback, 9781451638776]. A young hero overcomes implacable foes to lead a planet fallen into a dark age back to the high point of its lost technological civilization. Contains The Anvil and The Steel in the General series. Series relaunched in The Heretic [Baen 2013 April hardcover, 9781451638813]. After the collapse of the galactic Web, civilizations crumbled and chaos reigned on thousands of planets. Only on planet Bellevue was there a difference. There, a Fleet Battle Computer named Center had survived from the old civilization. When it found Raj Whitehall, the man who could execute its plan for reviving human civilization, he and Center started Bellevue back on the road leading to the stars. Now Raj Whitehall has come close to reuniting the entire planet of Bellevue. Because of his victories and because of the way he won them, Raj is loved by the people--and his army would follow him to Hell. Even those closest to him, his band of sworn companions and his wickedly subtle but utterly loyal wife, hold him in awe. And that's the problem. For though Raj battles only in the name of his emperor and has proven his loyalty again and again, still the half-mad jealousy and fear of that emperor Clerett is about to give Raj no choice but to revolt or face death and the loss of all he has gained for freedom. About prequel omnibus volume, Hope Reborn: "The various battles and intrigues-all of them very clever and some of them very unexpected-make up the core of these extremely well-written and unabashedly fun books. And really, the action never stops. I highly recommend them to you as they've come out in a tasty trade format that's very easy to hold and lug around (they are, in other words, backpackable)."--Amazing Stories About the Raj Whitehall series: "[T]old with knowledge of military tactics and hardware, and vividly described action.devotees of military SF should enjoy themselves."--Publishers Weekly "[A] thoroughly engrossing military sf series.superb battle scenes, ingenious weaponry and tactics, homages to Kipling, and many other goodies.

Can even a battle computer of the Galactic Age be enough to counter the fury of Raj's enemies . . . and the treachery of his friends?
