'The historians can't seem to settle whether to call this one 'The Third Space War' (or the fourth), or whether 'The First Interstellar War' fits it better. We just call it 'The Bug War'. Everything up to then and still later were 'incidents', 'patrols' or 'police actions'. However, you are just as dead if you buy the farm in an 'incident' as you are if you buy it in a declared war.'

5,000 years in the future, humanity faces total extermination. Our one defence: highly-trained soldiers who scour the metal-strewn blackness of space to hunt down a terrifying enemy: an insect life-form known only as 'Bugs.'

This is the story of trooper Johnny Rico, from his idealistic enlistment in the infantry of the future through his rigorous training to the command of his own platoon. And his destiny is a war that will span the galaxy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Heinlein's genius is at its height in this timeless classic that is as meaningful today as when it was written . . . a definite must-have, must-read book - SF Site

Nothing has come along that can match it - Science Fiction Weekly

Heinlein was absolutely at his peak when he wrote this in 1959 . . . this is military SF done extremely well

“A true classic”

Sci-fi that makes you think is always going to be controversial and heinlein was nothing if provocative with his writing. Some of the subjects explored in his other writing seem shocking but are done in a thought... More
