The Premier Mil-SF Series Returns 25 Years Later

At the height of the Cold War, the most important series in military science fiction was THERE WILL BE WAR.

Created by science fiction legend Dr. Jerry Pournelle, the nine volumes of THERE WILL BE WAR combined the very best science fiction writers with some of the most influential military writers on the planet. A living chronicle of the Cold War, the series was thought to have ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989.

But history did not end. A new power, dedicated to world peace through world submission, has arisen from the ashes of Iraq and continues to steadily grow. A new type of asymmetric warfare, 4th Generation War, has struck everywhere from Paris to San Bernardino. The USA and Russia are clashing everywhere from Ukraine to Syria, as China quietly expands her influence in the South China Sea. It is clear to even the casual observer that, once more, there will be war.

There Will Be War Volume X is edited by Jerry Pournelle and features 18 short stories and articles that explore the new challenges posed by new enemies and new forms of warfare. From genetic war on Planet Earth to space combat among the distant stars, from ancient history to hyperintelligent weapons, the latest volume in the revived anthology series contemplates warfare from every angle. The non-fiction essays are intelligent and insightful, written by subject experts representing four of the U.S. Armed Forces; the centerpiece is an original essay by military historian Martin van Creveld on the bloody history of "War and Migration" that is as significant as it is timely.

The Volume X contributors are: Gregory Benford, Charles W. Shao, William S. Lind, Lt. Col. Gregory A. Thiele, USMC, Ben Bova, Allen M. Steele, Michael Flynn, Martin van Creveld, Matthew Joseph Harrington, Cheah Kai Wai, Col. Douglas Beason, USAF, ret., John DeChancie, CDR Phillip E. Pournelle, USN, Russell Newquist, Brian J. Noggle, David VanDyke, Lt. Col. Guy R. Hooper, USAF, ret., Michael L. McDaniel, Poul Anderson, and Larry Niven.

There Will Be War Volume X is 401 pages, DRM-free, and $4.99. Available only on Amazon.

All New Release subscribers who buy the book on Amazon before noon EST on Wednesday, December 9th, have permission to download free copies of West of Honor by Jerry Pournelle as well as the novel First Conquest from bestselling mil-SF author, and Volume X contributor, David VanDyke.

"History has not ended. The world has not united in peace and liberal democracy. This series has been revived to again offer stories and essays on the challenges of the future; in a time when There Will Be War. "
– Jerry Pournelle
