The planet was called A-9. The air was unbreathable, the water poisonous. But it had to be conquered, for it was the home world of the most implacable enemies that cosmically expanding humanity had yet encountered.

The modern classic that builds upon Starship Troopers and The Forever War, Armor is a story that is deeply rooted in war and the PTSD that comes with combat. The book is told in three sections, with the first focusing on the character of Felix, a newly trained combatant in a war against an insectoid alien race that is fighting back against mankind's new journey out into the stars. Felix, through the crucible of combat, develops an alternate personality called "The Machine", that puts his combat reflexes and mental capacity for violence into overdrive. Then, just as suddenly, Felix disappears and is considered killed in combat. Then, his armor is found on a distant planet, unraveling a mystery that demonstrates the power of the human spirit.

A unique starkness pervades this SF piece. This is one of those surprisingly emotionally powerful combinations of SF & War, one suspects the author has almost actually lived the story? Not to everyone's liking, but definitely a warlike anti-war piece, offering serious insights. [I personally felt emotionally drained by it, but would highly recommend it.] Author also wrote the Vampire$ novel, which the movie, Vampires with James Woods, was based on.
