Packed with hard-core action written by battle-savvy combat veterans, the explosive
Starfist series has become hugely popular across America. Now the saga of the courageous
Marines continues in Flashfire, as the 34th Fleet Initial Strike Team (FIST) ventures
to the edge of Human Space to fight a number of enemies . . . some on their own side.


Tensions erupt between the Confederation and several frontier worlds when civilians
are shot dead at an army base on the planet Ravenette. Enraged, the Ravenette government
and nine neighboring planets form a coalition, and their first act of secession is
to overrun Ravenette's Confederation garrison. With the armed forces of ten worlds
seizing the brutal upper hand, the embattled troops need help-now-and they need it
bad.

Enter the Marines of the 34th FIST. As the nearest ready-to-deploy unit, the
team is sent to Ravenette with orders to hold the line until reinforcements arrive.
The upcoming operation promises to be no picnic, for while sophisticates may ridicule
the backward ways of the uncouth frontier folk, no one scoffs at their fighting ability.

Charlie Bass doesn't mince words for his men in Company L's third platoon. Two army
divisions-perhaps thirty thousand soldiers-are being overwhelmed, and somebody expects
a thousand Marines to save the day. As pompous Confederation generals wreak even
more havoc than the enemy, there are those who call the mission suicide . . . but
not the Marines.

Of course it sounds hopeless, but for Marines like Charlie Bass
and the rest of the 34th FIST, accomplishing the impossible comes with the territory.
