"Exciting and suspenseful. The humanity of the characters mixes well with the action to give this space drama real punch."--Publishers Weekly LEGIO PATRIA NOSTRA Far in the future, those condemned to death or fatally ill have two choices: to die, or to join the Legion of the Damned. Their bodies will be destroyed and their minds implanted in cyborgic soldiers, programmed to fight for the Human Empire. Trouble is brewing among the Confederacy of Sentient Beings, and the aggressive Hudathan aliens are turning their attentions towards Earth. Ruled by an insane emperor and an ineffective and corrupt government, it is up to the Legion to save the Empire from destruction. "Dietz's expertise in matters of mayhem is second to none."--The Oregonian "A tough, moving novel of future warfare." --David Drake, author of Hammer's Slammers

an excellent beginning for years of Legion stories set in a space age future that still struggles with powerful enemies, many of which are found within their own governments and alliances.

The interplanetary Confederacy is beset by enemies on all sides some of whom are, were or will become allies in this constanly shifting struggle for power that seems to haunt every sentinent species.

Dietz weaves his stories through book after book and year after year graphically illustrating the slaughter and gore that only advanced technology can manifest.
