This is a paperback edition of the 2005 book. Beason (PhD, laser physics; USAF, retired) is an expert on directed energy research who has served as a White House advisor. He traces the development of an emerging generation of weapons that beam light-wave energy rather than bombs or bullets. Their precision should minimize collateral damage. The book makes a case for the use of masers (microwave lasers) and related technology and includes a chronology of milestones, battle scenarios, and illustrations of weapons and delivery systems.
