Here are my top five military science fiction books ever…in order.
1. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers– Its the grand daddy of the all. SO much better than the movie.
2. Halderman’s The Forever War– I find a lot of folks have not read this book…it is just an utter masterpiece of the genre.
3. Steakley- Armor– A lesser known one but really good. A strong message about PTSD and the psychology of war.
4.Scalzi’s- The Ghost Brigade– I give this book a slight nod over Old Man’s War, the first book in the series.It has a bit of a more focused story that does not need to set up the world as much, and the book benefits.
5.- Scalzi’s- The Old Man’s War– A nice modern epic with a great world and some fantastic sci fi notions. A modern must read.
