Starship Troopers

Starship Troopers 1st EdIntro

Robert A. Heinlein‘s controversial Starship Troopers (1960) was an early example of military sf. It was filmed by Paul Verhoeven as Starship Troopers (1997).

Savage parodies include Harry Harrison‘s Bill the Galactic Hero (1965) and Norman Spinrad‘s The Iron Dream (1972); a more measured response is Joe Haldeman‘s Nebula Award winning The Forever War (1975)
