Pyramid F-886 The Earth War NF
The Earth War
By Mack Reynolds
Cover by John Schoenherr
Written during the height of the Cold War, the author's prognostication of 21st-century warfare is rather amusing today. Still a kool story, though.
In the new century, the face of war (East vs. West, Freedom vs. Communism) had changed. Atomic weapons - out! Bazookas and rockets -- nyet! Machine guns - maybe. The newest secret weapon: the glider!!
The two opposing ideologies had managed an uneasy sort of truce by banning all weapons developed after 1900, and restricting wars to local disputes between corporations, conglomerates, and/or unions! It was a crazy way of doing things, but it worked - until an ambitious Major upset the applecart, and threw the world's peace into deadly peril.
First book publication, 1963. A clean, UNREAD copy. Covers are white but spine is sunburned. Pages are off-white.
