Riassunto: Soldier of Fortune, Man of Destiny The Dorsai are the most deadly mercenaries of the fourteen inhabited worlds of man. Donal Graeme is an odd young man. While he hails from two of the greatest lines of the Dorsai, none of the other Dorsai know what to make of him. Top of his class, unquestionable honor and bravery, and yet he seems somehow different, even to himself. In that difference lies greatness. But will it be enough to save the Dorsai and perhaps all of mankind? This edition restores the original text that appeared in Astounding. A Hugo-Nominated Masterpiece of Military SF.
