From the #1 New York Times bestseller At the Battle School, there is only one course of study: the strategy and tactics of war. Humanity is fighting an alien race, and we fight as one. Students are drawn from all nations, all races, all religions, taken from their families as children. There is no room for cultural differences, no room for religious observances, and there is certainly no room for Santa Claus. But the young warriors disagree. When Dink Meeker leaves a Sinterklaaus Day gift in another Dutch student's shoe, that quiet act of rebellion becomes the first shot in a war of wills that the staff of the Battle School never bargained for. Orson Scott Card's novel Ender's Game is the basis of the hit movie of the same name.

Professional reviews

"For years science fiction lovers have enjoyed Orson Scott Card's stories spinning out of his ENDER'S GAME novels. In these books the human race is fighting for survival against an interstellar insect race and then fighting against itself. With able help from narrators Scott Brick and Stefan Rudnicki, Card continues to dip into the mythos with a glimpse into the lives of some of the Earth's generals in their youth. The stalwart Brick is known for delivering credible performances regardless of genre. He excels in this brief story about hyper-intelligent children placed in a rigorous "battle school" for training to become the Earth's generals and leaders. But the teachers go too far when they ban religion, planting the seeds for future problems. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
