Advances in modern war techniques have led many to "cleaner" and "cleaner" weapons.
Countries have created missiles that can pinpoint a room within a building - greatly reducing the risks to non-combatants in a war zone.
In the Star Trek episode "A Taste of Armegeddon" Captain Kirk challenged that war had to be messy so that people had a reason to avoid it. In this collection 11
authors will look at ways that warfare will advance in the future - from a war that has determined safe zones that cannot be attacked to a virtual war where a law
still exists that can require one-tenth of the population to be killed to a closed meeting room where world leaders order the destruction of their own people to show
just how far they will go in attacking the enemy.
Whether you agree with war or not, these stories will cause you to pause and think about the ways in which war is waged.
