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...

In one of Robert A. Heinlein’s most controversial bestsellers, a recruit of the future goes through the toughest boot camp in the Universe—and into battle with the Terran Mobile Infantry against mankind’s most alarming enemy.

Really can't stand Robert Heinlein. I tried three of his books. I was unable to read more than a few pages of any of them.

Starship Troopers is fantasy?

"No, not the movie, a travesty that should have never been made" Truer words were never spoken.

The book was awful. The movie was in my opinion a satire of Heinlein's absurd politics, mixed in with goofy over the top gore. Certainly more fun than the book.
