There had to be a reason why that isolated human colony had been able to survive mankind's implacable enemies
After the collapse of civilization, when the social fabric of America has come apart in bloody rags, when every man's hand is raised against another, and only the strong survive. There had to be a reason why that isolated human colony had been able to survive mankind's implacable enemies. But nobody had been able to get to the quaintly named Dunroamin to find out.

But Bakhalla has more battlefields than libraries, and Graeme sees his small force of Dorsai-soldiers of fortune-as the perfect opportunity to test his theories.
