Military SF is a complicated sub genre and despite the problems with Starship Troopers, it remains a favorite story of mine. I’ve been working recently to get an anthology of modern war stories, and I was interested in seeing where the modern movement came from. Unsurprisingly, it’s the product of both the 2nd World War, the Cold War and the style of American politics that emerged from that era.

Go read Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers & The Cold War over on Kirkus Reviews.
