ePub The Mammoth Book of SF Wars ePub

by Ian Watson

Over the past 100 years the technology of war has advanced enormously in destructive power. So what will future wars be like? And what will cause them: religion, politics, resources, refugees, or advanced weaponry itself? Watson and Whates present a collection of gripping SF stories which explores a daunting gamut of possible future conflicts: nuclear tactics and enhanced soldiery, terrorism and cyberware, intelligent robotic machines and even war with aliens.
