2nd in this military SF series. I think this is the first military SF series where the young hero isn't promoted at the end of the first novel or the beginning of the second.

This novel is brutal; Helfort faces a horrible captain, then gets captured by the enemy and horribly tortured. You might say he goes through his dark night of the soul (I sort of thought he did that in the first novel).

Reminds me a bit of Weber, so if you like Weber's Honor Harrington, I think you'll like this series.

This is a good, milfic, sci-fi novel. The politics are believable, the action fun, and the characters are likable and believable. As a series, it's well worth a read for space opera fans.
A bit more action ... it's not "The Lost Fleet", but it's okay.
Reasonably intelligent novel.
