The Posleen War series is a series of military science fiction novels by American author John Ringo. The series is also known as the Legacy of the Aldenata series. In 2001, a peaceful Galactic Federation makes contact with the human race, and they are being attacked by aliens known as the Posleen.

    So I’m guessing I should just read this in the publication order? or read each series and then go back and read the side series and stories? I think I can at least start with “A Hymn Before Battle.”
