From back cover: Armed for justice, trained to kill- they are the best of the best. Star Commandos. A military elite, forged in a galactic conflict. War's end marks the beginning of their mission: to protect human colonies from the blood-drenched clutches of post-war scavengers.
In his nightmares, Varn Tarl Sogan still sees the fungus which scours the planet Mirelle of all other life. He still sees the death of his kinsmen - a slow doom of agony and madness. He still feels the paralysis that signals the beginning of the end.
A pirate band has established a base on Mirelle. They must be wiped out before their ships can comtaminate other worlds with the death spores. Only Sogan can lead his commando comrades into this hell-world from his past- but the cost of victory may be his sanity.
