Gust Front by John Ringo

Description: The aliens had arrived with gifts, warnings and an offer we couldn't refuse...
Our choice was simple: we could be cannon fodder or we could be...fodder. We could send our forces to fight and die (as only humans can) against a ravening horde that was literally feeding on its interstellar conquests - or remain as we were - virtually weaponless and third in line as brunch.

We chose to fight.

Thanks to alien technology and sheer guts, the Terrans on two worlds fought the Posleen to a standstill. Thank God there was a moment to catch our breath, a moment, however brief, of peace-

Now, for the survivors of the Barwhon and Diess expeditionary forces, it was a chance to get some distance from the blood and misery of battle against the Posleen centaurs. A blessed chance to forget the screams of the dying under searing alien suns.

For Earth it was an opportunity to flesh out their force of raw recruits with combat-seasoned veterans. Political, military and scientific blundering had left the Terran forces in shambles - and with the Posleen invasion only months away, these shell-shocked survivors might be the only people capable of saving Earth from devastation.

If the veterans had time to lick their wounds.

Because the Posleen don't read schedules.
