Captain John “Black Jack” Geary races to save a group of Alliance POWs from certain death in this gripping novel in New York Times bestselling author Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet series.
 
Alliance prisoners of war are being held at a labor camp in the Heradao star system, which also happens to be the location of the majority of the surviving Syndic warships. Determined not to leave any of his people behind, “Black Jack” Geary orders the fleet to strike hard and fast to rescue the POWs with minimal Alliance losses.
 
The raid is successful, but victory is short-lived. Geary discovers that the Syndics plan to ambush the fleet with their powerful reserve flotilla in an attempt to annihilate it once and for all—but he doesn’t know where the enemy is located. And as Geary has the fleet jump from one star system to the next, hoping to avoid the inevitable confrontation, saboteurs contribute to the chaos...

"Tanya, how many people do I kill, how many people do I ask to die fighting, in the name of avenging a crime committed a hundred years ago? I'm not perfect. If I could somehow get my hands on the Syndic bastards who started this war, I'd make them suffer. But they're all dead. Now I'm damned if I can figure out what this war is still about aside from avenging the latest defeat or atrocity. it's turned into a self-sustaining cyclic reation, and you and I both know the Alliance as well as the Syndicate Worlds are starting to crack from the pressure of a war without end.

Situation: recounting historical battles, and the destruction of a planet.

Geary shook his head, feeling sick inside. "How could anyone give such orders?"
"Oh, it's easy enough, Captain Geary. you justy have to form your palns somewhere far from the enemy while looking at a large star display with lots of little planets on it. Just dots with strange names. Targets. Not the homes of people like you, but targets that must be wiped out in the name of protecting people llike you. It's very easy," she repeated, "to rationalize the murders of millions or billions."

Continues to be a good series, which, by this time, some don't! So, thought to mention this. Space battles still fascinating, as is the "relationship" development between Fleet Comander and the other Captains. A little more human development on this one.
