The Buchanan Campaign Summary

Rick Shelley’s Federation War trilogy begins with a novel that takes you through the barracks corridors and the trenches of war, bringing the war of the future home with a combination of battlefield action and home-town heroics.

For Doug Weintraub of the Buchanan Planetary Commission, it begins with a fuzzy call, quickly cut off. Federation troops have invaded his world. The battle they’ve long feared and tried to avoid is coming. Now it’s time to seek help, to launch a rocket into Q Space, and hope for Second Commonwealth troops to arrive - and soon.

Aboard the Starship Victoria, it begins differently. It’s a short, unexpected message on the screen for Sergeant David Spencer of the Royal Marines. New orders - surprising ones - that will send him and his men to an independent frontier world that’s become a new front in the war between the Commonwealth and Federation.

Doug Weintraub and David Spencer soon find themselves in unexpected roles - a skilled warrior in the Royal Marines side-by-side with a back-world farmer. They’ll need each other to keep the Federation at bay.

    Coventry: One of the founding worlds of the Second Commonwealth. It lies just eight light years away from the Commonwealth’s capitol world, Buckingham, but it’s mostly been ignored during the Federation War. No longer. The Federation has its sights set on taking Coventry by any means necessary. Their first wave of attacking troops have set Coventry aflame in an effort to force out the population and keep local resistance at bay as they establish a base for attacking the heart of the Commonwealth.

    Prince George, Earl of New Britain, was supposed to hold a position of great importance on Buckingham, capitol world of the Second Commonwealth. However, Prince George wasn’t on Buckingham. He hadn’t been for seven years, in fact. The Federation War had stranded him on the resort world of Camerein, His Royal Highness little more than a footnote to the long, bitter war.
