-Poul Anderson, The Game Of Empire IN Anderson, Flandry's Legacy (Riverdale, NY, 2012), pp. 189-453 AT CHAPTER EIGHT, p. 279.
We want to read a Technic History installment set later in which a spacefarer refers, without explanation, to "Battle Sun." However, The Game Of Empire, published in 1985, was the last written installment. Four installments set later were written earlier but none refers to a Battle Sun - I don't think.
For the historical significance of an English village called "Battle," see Faces Of War.
The battle at the red sun is the first major engagement between Gerhartists and Olafists in a Terran civil war. I will not summarize the war here but will post about interesting details like Battle Sun.
Posting over lunch, I will shortly repair to the gym and swimming pool where I have once or twice received inspiration for further posts. See Dennitza And Ys: Their Contrasting Fates.
