Product Description

Three complete novels in the New York Times best-selling series, all in one generous volume.

Insurrection: After the war against the Khanate ended in victory, the Inner Worlds found it hard to give up the powers they had seized over the Fringe Worlds during the conflict. So they invited the Khanate in to the Federation, to keep the colonial upstarts in their place. The Fringers have one answer to that: Insurrection!

Crusade: Neither side in the Human-Orion war was strong eno

This is actually two novels in one (called a megabook). This volume includes both Crusade and In Death Ground. Those familiar with David Webber's other books will not be surprised at the large emphasis upon the military, strategy and the role of technology in warfare.

Crusade is a very intense book, about an alien race's invasion of human space. Their goal, actually, is to "rescue" the human race from their apostasy and return them to their true faith. White and Webber have crafted a rather inten

Getting 2 novels in one is always a good start.
This pair of books are set in the universe of the man-Kzin wars and are good space-opera.

Crusade is a good read with some nice twists and turns and some charming characters. The plot device of religious control strike me as a little contrived but there are enough real examples of religious wars that it's not completely unrealistic. Yea I know we're talking about a story with spaceships and aliens, the point is that the plot and the progress are entr

David Weber, nothing else needs to be said. This was and excellent book as are all of his books I have read. His writing style and his stories lock you in to the point where you cannot put it down.

As with all his other books, this is a must read for any military sci-fi fan.
Greg
A great set of books and a must great for any Weber/White fan or anyone who likes military science fiction/space opera. There's few with the mastery of this genera like Weber & White...
Roberto
A collection of clichés (Niven wants his Kzin back, authors!), but it moves at a good pace, and is entertaining.
Troy G
Both parts of this mega book are 5 stars, so the combination also deserves 5 stars.
Christopher Steller
Non-stop action - a hard to put down extravaganza from David Weber.
John Rossman
