Read full description of the books Patriot's Stand (Mechwarrior: Dark Age, #9):"Patriot's Stand" shifts the focus from the interstellar map to a conflict brooding on the impossibly named planet Alkalurops. Here a group of farming pioneers have to defend themselves against a mercenary raiding party, contracted by an unknown third party. Desperate to ward off further attacks the feeble planet sends out an emissary to shop for a mercenary contract of their own. The massive cost of fielding a rental army of their own however, forces them to return home with only a small band of ragtag hired guns. Once the real invasion begins, the farmers have to equip themselves and their industrial mechs as best they can, drawing on local knowledge and the cunning of their hired help.
Overall the story is well told and although it features a cliché band of likeable misfits and peasants turned heroes as well as a hopelessly overplayed tyrant, I still fell for it. Basically the whole plot comes down to what you could call "The A-Team in Space".
If you are reading the books only to advance the Dark Age plotline you can safely skip this title as it changes nothing in regard to the main story arc.
