Old Man's War #5: The Human Division
For generations the Colonial Union has defended humanity against hostile aliens, deliberately keeping Earth an ignorant backwater and a source of military recruits. Now the CU's secrets are known to all. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance - against the CU. And they've invited Earth to join. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the choice isn't obvious or easy. Against such possibilities, managing the survival of the CU won't be easy either. It will take diplomatic finesse, political cunning - and a brilliant 'B Team', centered on the resourceful Lieutenant Harry Wilson, that can be deployed to deal with the unpredictable things the universe throws at you when you're struggling to preserve the unity of the human race.
