In a future where Mother Earth has cast her children to the distant stars to begin anew and colonize the cosmos, the planet remains depleted of natural resources. Its air polluted by caustic iron and belching smoke, Earth faces her last desperate days in the grip of global environmental collapse.

In one final and feeble effort, Earth's Grand President Makin musters the dregs of his fleet and sends three separate missions to the deepest reaches of space. Their mission: solicit help from the far-flung colonial civilizations, or watch the planet die.

Also includes the Science Fiction stories Tough Old Man AND Battling Bolto

    " One of the best book I've read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joshua | 10/12/2013

    " I might have rated it higher if it didn't hype itself up so much just to be vaguely blase. Okay, but not spectacular. "

    " Not much of a military reading fan but was ok "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Valdivia | 8/26/2013

    " Didn't know what to think at first picking up this L Ron Hubbard book considering all the scientology crap, gotta admit it blew my mind away. A great book from beginning to end Id recommend it to anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Schore | 5/19/2013

    " The book was ok, but this is one of my favorite endings in any book i have read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Resch | 2/14/2013

    " A good idea finely executed. Largely overlooked. Check this book out for sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Tasler | 2/6/2013

    " One of L. Ron's earliest and most straight-forward novels of war. The Lieutenant is a remarkably written character that resonates beyond the fairly brief length of the book. A great piece of alternate military history written while WWII was still being fought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Callie Ferman | 1/12/2013

    " I read this book at least 3 times when I was a kid at my local library. Definitely a captivating story! As other reviewers have mentioned, it has some very interesting ideas in it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 12/22/2012

    " Surprisingly, this isn't about Scientology or heavy drinking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 12/17/2012

    " Felt this was a cross between the plots and themes of The Red Badge of Courage and Apocalypse Now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynette Aspey | 11/13/2012

    " Interesting, from a SF-historical point of view. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenneth Flusche | 8/10/2012

    " Interesting book considering it was written before Pearl Harbor, Anti-War, Anti-Government, written by a winning soldier. Wondering if Castro read this book before taking over Cuba? "
