Arms, Science, and International Conflict... At the dawn of the 21st Century, science fiction depicted lasers as a standard weapon of future warfare. In fact no laser weapons existed. Yet. Who, then, will be The First Laser Warriors? What will be their story? John D. Gonglewski, writing from within the inner world of U.S. military scientists, international treaty negotiators, North Korean politicians, and the Airborne Laser and its diverse crew--based on the major laser aircraft acquisition underway today--spins a globe-spanning tale of history, technology, temptation, and revenge.
