The future of war, from the Creator of Retief!
The classic military dilemma: can you trust those who are your servants not to turn on you? In the years of the Terran Empire the servants protecting humankind are machines endowed with artificial intelligence, and the most powerful of them all are the Bolos. They started out as simple tanks-now, the Mark XXX Bolo controls the galaxy. But is the Bolo mankind's worst enemy-or mankind's only hope? When the implacable alien Deng expand into human space the strategic mastermind-machine that is the Bolo leaps to the offensive. But the Bolo seems to have a war plan all its own, one that doesn't take humanity into account . . .
The parts of The Compleat Bolo have appeared previously as Bolo and Rogue Bolo.
