Description

The military sci-fi classic of courage on a dangerous alien planet

The planet is called Banshee. The air is unbreathable, the water is poisonous. It is home to the most implacable enemies that humanity, in all its interstellar expansion, has ever encountered.

Body armor has been devised for the commando forces that are to be dropped on Banshee—the culmination of ten thousand years of the armorers’ craft. A trooper in this armor is a one-man, atomic powered battle fortress. But he will have to fight a nearly endless horde of berserk, hard-shelled monsters—the fighting arm of a species which uses biological technology to design perfect, mindless war minions.

Felix is a scout in A-team Two. Highly competent, he is the sole survivor of mission after mission. Yet he is a man consumed by fear and hatred. And he is protected, not only by his custom-fitted body armor, but by an odd being which seems to live within him, a cold killing machine he calls “The Engine.”

This is Felix’s story—a story of the horror, the courage, and the aftermath of combat, and the story, too, of how strength of spirit can be the greatest armor of all.

Finally!

I've been waiting a LONG time for this book to be available as an e-book. There are TWO classic novels of future combat, Joe Haldeman's The Forever War, and this book is the other one. The way the story is structured, might throw some readers off at first. You follow harrowing and hopeless combat and then get tossed into a caper story, but it comes together like a solid punch to the gut.

Engrossing

One of the first books I ever read as a kid. Got me hooked on reading.

Mr.
