Synopsis

A century ago, all but two members of Lance Scipio’s unit were executed. He has been woken into a strange new time, and tasked with whipping into shape the worst squad of misfits in the entire Human Marine Corps. The price of failure is death – no pressure!

2565AD. Tranquility-4 near the frontier of the White Knight Empire. Guided by mysterious orders, the authorities at the Human Marine Corps base of Beta City thaw Lance Scipio. In 2441, an entire Marine company was executed with the exception of Captain Grimgerde and Sergeant Lance Scipio, the usual punishment for running in the face of the enemy. But these two were preserved… as if they would be required in the future.

Although Scipio is not expected to escape execution for long, he has been given a slim chance. For a Marine, a chance is all that is needed to change the fate of worlds. This entertaining tale takes many twists and turns as Scipio not only turns this band of misfits into first class marines, but also teaches them forgotten tactics making them a force to be reconed with.

J.R. Handley is a pseudonym for a husband and wife writing team. He is a veteran infantry sergeant with the 101st Airborne Division and the 28th Infantry Division. She is the kind of crazy that interprets his insanity into cogent English. He writes the sci-fi while she proofreads it. The sergeant is a two-time combat veteran of the late unpleasantness in Mesopotamia where he was wounded, likely doing something stupid. He started writing military science fiction as part of a therapy program suggested by his doctor, and hopes to entertain you while he attempts to excise his demons through these creative endeavors. In addition to being just another dysfunctional veteran, he is a stay at home wife, avid reader and all around nerd. Luckily for him, his Queen joins him in his fandom nerdalitry.
