Chronicles of the Black Company by Glen Cook
Chronicles of the Black Company

Black_Jack_1968, January 1, 2011

There are no heroes in the Black Company, only men who are doing their best to survive.
The best way to do that, is to bury your conscience with your dead.

This is the first three books chronicling the exploits of The Black Company and is a complete narrative tale.

Glen Cook changed fantasy and sci-fi writing forever with his tale of a military unit dedicated to surviving by being the best. Unlike most stories where you follow along with the hero, or the villain, as they battle for supremacy through the destruction of the other, this is a tale of those who are little more than pawns on the field of battle. They can see only that part of the great plan which is in front of them.

Great characters, who are human and flawed, trying to survive among the powerful, scheming, and treacherous.
