Overview and Observations:
I keep reading Jack Campbell's The Lost Stars series because I like the reoccurring characters who are featured in it. The independent star system of Midway launched a preemptive invasion to liberate the Ulundi star system. General Drakon's infantry division are almost trapped on the planet when a battleship from Midway shows up to even the score for the underdogs. The remaining Syndicate Worlds' mobile forces and infantry divisions are destroyed and scattered by a planetary bombardment.
That helps General Drakon's power armor troops take control of a Snake fortifications as the Syndicate's best troops die in the hell fire. The Midway fleet finishes off the remaining Syndicate land forces before the survivors surrender to General Drakon. However, Midway came as liberators to Ulundi. The Midway forces gather up their own force via some troop transports and head home. Not before giving some advice on how to govern Ulundi to the planet's population...
