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.

4.0 The Risks of Universal Enfranchisement: "Starship Troopers" by Robert A. Heinlein
Word of warning. I’m going to discourse both on the book and on the Verhoeven’s movie. He didn't include them as "grunts" probably because the training was sufficiently hard that most wouldn't have made it.

Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein My rating: 5 of 5 stars This is my very first Robert A. Heinlein book. I've heard of his books for so many years, and yet have been repelled from reading.

5.0 Starship Troopers
Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I had a hard time putting it down and sped through it. For a military adventure set during a war it had a surprisingly small amount of action, though it added to the realism. All in all I would recommend this book to just about anyone.
