Summary

Nick Seafort returned to Earth expecting a court-martial, but instead he's tapped by the naval academy. This is no ordinary desk job.... Luck has always run in both directions for Naval Commandant Nicholas Seafort. While he has managed to save the Hope Nation colony from alien attack, he and his friends have paid a heavy price. Most recently his exploits have earned him a dignified position as an instructor at the United Nations Naval Academy. But as Seafort suspects, trouble isn't far behind. A return to Earth means a return to his roots, some of which he wishes would remain buried. He's uncomfortable with fame and can't always restrain his temper as the political machine shifts around him. But when the fishlike aliens mount an attack, Seafort is the only man Earth can count on. Now he must decide whether he has the courage and fortitude to make a terrible choice....

Love the story

loved the story and I've read it a few times before. The narrator really annoyed me by mispronouncing a lot of words.

Unbelievably good......

Without a doubt the best sci fi I have read since "Have spacesuit will travel" and that was just about the first science fiction I ever read (Heinlein of course In the 1950's). The story just flows and flows, never lagging and Proving the narrator's worth beyond question. Can't wait to start the next one......
But PLEASE tell your narrator that "BuPers" is pronounced just like it looks NOT "boo-pairs"! (Thanks... That is driving me nuts!)

Tried to give this series another chance. Seafort still whining and abusing subordinates.
