Introduction by John Ringo.
OVERVIEW: The auxiliary scout platoon known as the Cockroaches contains all the outsiders and oddballs the Galactic Defense Force doesn’t want to have to deal with but can’t find a way to discharge from the Space Service. They’re savvy, street-smart, wise if not book-learned, intelligent, survival oriented and completely unconventional. Lt. David Wolfe is their new CO: young, idealistic and gung-ho, but even he has a secret that forced Central Command to shift him out of the line of fire. The Cockroaches get sent on what ought to be a cream-puff assignment, a simple courier mission to the greatest amusement park in the galaxy, and end up defending the population from a ruthless enemy in the only way the Cockroaches know how: unconventionally.
