Jason Wander is ready to lead the final charge into battle.

After forty years of fighting the Slugs, mankind's reunited planets control the vital crossroad that secures their uneasy union. The doomsday weapon that can end the war, and the mighty fleet that will carry it to the Slug homeworld, lie within humanity's grasp.

Since the Slug Blitz orphaned Jason Wander, he has risen from infantry recruit to commander of Earth's garrisons on the emerging allied planets. But four decades of service have cost Jason not just his friends and family, but his innocence.

When an enemy counter stroke threatens to reverse the war and destroy mankind, Jason must finally confront not only his lifelong alien enemy, but the reality of what a lifetime as a soldier has made him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Oh Rah! Lt. Gen. Jason Wander is back and he's prepared to kick slug tail. It's been decades since with the war with the slugs started and Jason Wander has been there since the beginning. The world thinks the slugs have been beaten back and that the war would soon be over. Ooops. No such luck. The slugs come back and steal an essential component to a massive WMD that the human race had been placing it's hopes on. It's up to Lt. Gen. Jason Wander to: 1)Use his diplomatic connections on a Facist world to get a substitute component. 2)Use super WMD to end war. 3)Try to live in world that has passed him by while he's been on the front lines defending it. I suppose a lot of career soliders will have empathy for Jason. It does show the view point of solider very well.
