----Great military SF. CLAN AND CROWN continues the Janissaries saga----
--From the back of the book:
For the first few years, Rick Galloway and his band of mercenaries were doing well just to survive. They'd been swept off a hilltop in Africa by a flying saucer, and deposited on an alien world where the other inhabitants were human--but from various and unfriendly periods of history, all collected by flying saucer raids.
Rick has faced facts. This planet is going to be home, permanently. And in creating a society safe for themselves and their families they are gradually building, they need to do more than just survive. They must convince the other people on the planet that a unified, peaceful society is better than a collection of warring tribes. Force would not be Rick's chosen method of persuasion, but on a planet where the other dominant culture is one brought straight from ancient Rome, force may be the only way.

As a military buff, Pournelle and his Janissaries have always been amoung my favorites. From an unlikely premise- Aliens shafted us! Pournelle gives us a logical tale of warfare and nation building. Good stuff!
