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.

Robert A. Heinlein announced himself as a master of modern science fiction with Starship Troopers, his controversial take on modern military politics. His best-known novels include The Moon is a Harsh Mistress and Stranger in a Strange Land.

“Unusual and thought provoking”

Whilst this classic work is undoubtedly dated, it was also ahead of its time in terms of the depiction of women. Critics might suggest that the narrative is too reliant on the author's own military service or... More
