Future Weapons Of War

Future Weapons of War (Mass Market) - Joe Haldeman A collection about the shape taken by tomorrow's wars, though focused more on the individual weapon or solider as opposed to the larger strategic view.Like any anthology it has its high points and low points, and one or two clunkers. A couple of the stories stuck with me, but none more than the piece about children being outfitted to become suicide bombers right after they were born -- with the time and place of the explosion coming years down the line.Overall, it's not a stellar collection -- it falls a little on the lightweight side of things -- but for fans of military SF, it's worth a read.
