"OUTCASTS OF THE UNIVERSE
In three bloody years of spacewar, the "barbarians" of the hell-world Ragnarok had destroyed the Gern empire - and freed the "civilized" planets of Earth and Athena from alien domination.
But the Earthenians feared and hated the men of Ragnarok and resented the superhuman strength and speed which had won the victory.
