Virtues of War is a military sci-fi, focusing very much on the military side of things with intense battles and a highly detailed navy regimen of a space fleet future. Characterisation details, not so much.
Virtues of War follows the investigation by Earth’s Astral Force into unrest in its interstellar colonies and attempting to diffuse the situation by a combination of coercion and diplomacy. When this fails and a full-scale war breaks out, everyone must do what they need to in order to simply survive. Read the rest here.
