Not the whole first five books. The VERY first one, i'll give you that, but messiah to chapterhouse at least stayed focused on politics 95% of the time.
Anderson and Brian Herbert though, they turned it into fucking star wars. 70% of the book is them ACTUALLY FIGHTING THE BATTLE instead of being cruel, manipulative bastards and winning by avoiding the battle and humiliating their foes at the same time.
TL:DR Code Geass with spice instead of sakuradite.
