Childe Cycle, Book 1. Gordon R. Dickson. Introduction By David Drake. Dorsai! is an exposition of what Basil Liddell-Hart termed the Strategy of Indirection. I do not imply a necessarily direct connection

Childe Cycle, Book 1. I do not imply a necessarily direct connection. Instead of overwhelming one’s opponent by brute force, the exponent of indirection maneuvers so that his opponent has to attack or (better yet) is checkmated without a battle. Liddell-Hart developed his theories as a reaction to the blood-drenched kilting grounds of World War (tee, a conflict that was as perfect an example of the brute force approach and its limitations as one could find.

As she sat cross-legged, her grey eyes gazing down into the valley on the Dorsai that held Fal Morgan and the surrounding homesteads, her face had the quality of a profile stamped on a silver coin. said Hal Mayne, gently. Lost in her thoughts, she did not hear him; and the moment was so close to perfection that he was reluctant to disturb it.

I will, however, insist that those two novels (first published within weeks of one another in 1959) are in combination the standard against which the subgenre of military SF must be judged.

It's obvious that Cletus Graeme-limping, mild-mannered scholarly-doesn't belong on a battling field, but instead at a desk working on his fourth book on battle strategy and tactics

It's obvious that Cletus Graeme-limping, mild-mannered scholarly-doesn't belong on a battling field, but instead at a desk working on his fourth book on battle strategy and tactics. But Bakhalla has more battlefields than libraries, and Graeme sees his small force of Dorsai-soldiers of fortune-as the perfect opportunity to test his theories. But if his theories or his belief in the Dorsai lead him astray, he's a dead man.

Talk about Dorsai

First read this as a teen many moons ago which left some lasting (positive) impressions with me, it's still one of my favorite books in the series, & Gordon R. Dickson is one of my longtime favorite authors. He's got a talent for creating in-depth societies, races, etc. and really has main characters that are well fleshed-out & believable. Instead of some other author's shallow, idiotic, cheesy shoot-em-up stories, he shows you the Dorsai who are a people that are instilled from birth with a sense of honor, respect, a strong work ethic, honesty, responsibility, and hard-won liberty. And the main character is a unique mix of soldier, philosopher, genius, etc.

This is the story of Donal Graeme, who is a soldier of the Dorsai world. This excellent story is set in the Childe Cycle at its peak, long after the Younger Worlds have achieved independence from Earth (Tactics of Mistake) but before the coming of the Others (The Final Encyclopedia). Donal Graeme descends from a long line of Dorsai solders, the first of whom was Cletus Grahame, the protagonist of "Tactics of Mistake." Childe Cycle fans know that the soldiers of the Dorsai are mercenaries, available to the highest bidder but efficient enough so that even the poorer of the Younger Worlds can afford to hire sufficient Dorsai to maintain their independence against stronger worlds. This is the backdrop of this novel, and Dickson's speculations in this regards are quite interesting. Incidentally, this novel is co-incident in time with "Soldier, Ask Not" which is another Dorsai novel.

This story deals with Donal's ascension to become the outstanding military general of his day. This piece features some of Dickson's best writing, and this is a fairly short, snappy novel which moves at a brisk pace towards a somewhat startling conclusion. This novel also sets the stage for The Final Encyclopedia, although this will not be evident to readers until they actually read that novel. In fact, this one ties "Necromancer" (the first "Childe Cycle" novel) and "The Final Encyclopedia" together in an interesting way.

An interesting story and satisfying read. Recommended for fans of good military SF or Dickson's Childe Cycle series.

As good and at times better than Heinlein's classic Starship Troopers, Dorsai is the foundation for a series that has not been given the reading that it deserves. Dickson's character creativity knows no bounds as he weaves a story that will engross any lover of a good story. I hope the remainder of the books will be released into the Kindle format in the near future so the series can be enjoyed by a wider readership and Dickson will be recognized all over again for his contributions to SF military novels.

While the resolution of the episodes with in the book are very predictable, the journey is told well enough to hook the reader. Don't expect too much, and you will get pleasantly surprised by the structure, of the story
