      Dr Jerry Eugene Pournelle was an American science fiction writer, engineer, essayist, and journalist, who contributed for many years to the computer magazine Byte, and from 1998 until his death maintained his own website and blog.From the beginning, Pournelle s work centered around strong military themes Several books describe the fictional mercenary infantry force known as Falkenberg s Legion There are strong parallels between these stories and the Childe Cycle mercenary stories by Gordon R Dickson, as well as Heinlein s Starship Troopers, although Pournelle s work takes far fewer technological leaps than either of these.Pournelle served as President of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in 1973.

    1. One of the John Falkenberg, CoDominium books Not what I was expecting as I d gotten it confused with another after all these years Actually, I didn t remember this much at all, but it s probably been over 30 years since I last read it I enjoyed it quite a lot It raises a wonderful moral dilemma for the armed services, diplomacy, Colonial government Better, it does it in a fast moving, action packed story with likeable characters Even the bad guys aren t well, read the book it s a tough situation [...]

    2. I first read this book as a teenager I don t remember if I read it, serialized in a magazine, or if I read it as a book I re read it today, forty years later I thought this was a good book, but then I enlisted, and spent 28 years in the Military Now, I know it is a GREAT book, and something that certainly should be mandatory reading for every young man or woman who wants to be an officer candidate Academy, ROTC or OTS I was ten years enlisted before I went to OTS, and I ve learned all the hard l [...]

    3. Ejemplo de Ciencia Ficci n militar basada en fuerzas de tierra convencionales G nero Ciencia Ficci n.Lo que nos cuenta El planeta Arrarat fue un planeta prisi n en el que ahora hay ciudadanos libres, personas que viven al borde la legalidad y reos que conviven de forma precaria en una sociedad entre lo medieval y la Norteam rica de la poca de los pioneros del oeste El capit n Falkenberg , salido hace poco de la Academia, y la compa a 501 de Infantes de Marina, son destinados a Arrarat para ayuda [...]

    4. Today s review is for West Of Honor 1978 , written by Jerry Pournelle Pournelle is a famous Science Fiction writer who not only wrote great individual novels, he also wrote story lines which spanned several books much like Robert Heinlein s Lazarus Long story timeline In Pournelle s case, the premise is that the United States and the Soviet Union come together to form a CoDominium to 1 control the Earth and the exploration of space and, 2 maintain their relative positions in the new age of space [...]

    5. A good but dated book Vietnam ended in 75 and this was published in 80 The combat is only slightly advanced from Vietnam era and the politics really aren t Soldiers are forced into dishonorable actions because of politics and even when they manage to fight against oppression the victory is tainted by the politics that created problem in the first place Nevertheless, Pournelle writes an intelligent and enjoyable hero story and I m glad I took the time to listen to it.

    6. The LegionA classic military scifi, short on the science, long on the military This starts the John Christian saga which is best appreciated by reading The Princeunfortunately unavailable electronically or new hardcover.

    7. On the planet of Arrarat, the decidedly low tech folks who are struggling with making a simple living on the planet have been invaded by convict gangs J.C Falkenberg and his brand new 501st Line Marine unit made up of newly minted officers, some veteran non coms and mostly new recruits had been sent to garrison the place and keep the peace Harlan Slater is the narrator, a new Lt fresh from the CoDomimium academy, he joined the Marines to avoid the legal problems he had gotten into on Earth There [...]

    8. West of Honor is there a clue in the title starts as a Space Western In an anti technology future on a frontier planet struggling ranchers are menaced by marauding bandits The Marines read US Cavalry are sent to restore order Sounds standard space opera, but Jerry Pournelle is an intelligent and thoughtful writer, there s a whole lot to the story than these basics Deriving it s impetus from the military sf genre which Pournelle, if he didn t invent, certainly took to prominence it adds a politi [...]

    9. Faljenberg s Legion which included this story was one of my favorite books when I was a teenager It played a part in my idealism that led me to enlisting in the infantry when I turned 17.25 years later it s still a good story As with some the books by Pournelle, as well as other sci fi stories of the era, the role if women is outdated Still, it seems to predict some other themes in other works In Joss Whedon s Firefly, we see space ships and horses side by side In West of Honor, Lt Slater consid [...]

    10. An older book from the 70s, I think about a junior Marine officer s first tour of duty off world Written near the end of the Cold War, the author Jerry Pournelle imagines a future where America and the Soviet Union create a Codominium in outer space and rule over a vast empire of planets with an iron fist I love military sci fi, and this one is a lot of fun I had not heard of this series before, and I am looking forward to reading the rest of them.

    11. This is a very good space military adventure book, the first in a series with John Falkenberg Pournelle has a great knack of making military adventures understandable and enjoyable to non military types, but this is not on the same par as Legacy of the Heorot The book is too short to really develop much empathy to the characters Still, it s well worth the read.This was my first e book read.

    12. Well written Pournelle, very well written But, the story the elites of both the west and east have screwed the world into a mediocre fascist pseudo state, then they not solve the problems they themselves caused by killing lots of people Perhaps if the soldiers turned their weapons on their commanding officers and then went home, things would be better

    13. Regular military novel set in the future Not too many really strong science fiction elements as such story set in other planet and a future time.

    14. recommended to my by one of my Sargents years ago Some of the comments and things described are been there done that Which lead to the credibility of the story.

    15. Good sci first military fiction.having read this before I wanted to pick up a copy for my kindle it is an older book but still good great intro to the condominium.

    16. When Harlequin the romance publisher branched into science fiction , this was one of the few books in their series worth reading.
