Major Levi Cohen readies to retire after twenty years of peacetime service to the Terran Coalition. With mere weeks remaining, he allows the luxury of imagining days alongside his wife and eight-year-old son instead of separated by duty. He promised that this year he wouldn’t miss another one of David’s birthdays – and he intends to keep his word.
His plans are cut short when the League of Sol sends a massive force of warships into Coalition territory. The only chance they have is to drag every available ship from mothballs and pray their superior technology will carry the day.
When an opportunity to strike at the heart of the enemy arises in the middle of battle, Levi realizes it is the one and only opening that will stave off complete disaster. The last option to save his wife and son from enslavement by the League.
All gave some; Levi must give all.
Witness the first battle that started a war and gave rise to one of the gutsiest heroes the galaxy has ever seen.
