"Light-emitting weapons seem to be the stuff of science fiction - Flash Gordon's ray gun, Captain Kirk's phaser, Darth Vader's light saber. But the imagined future of science fiction is soon to be a reality. After more than two decades of research, the United States is on the verge of deploying a new generation of weapons that discharge light-wave energy, the same spectrum of energy found in your microwave or TV remote control. It's called directed energy. And it's a revolution in weaponry, perhaps more profound than the atomic bomb." "In The E-Bomb, Doug Beason, a leading expert in directed energy research, describes these new weapons in clear and jargon-free prose and answers the questions that all Americans will ask."--Jacket

Only Colonel "Iceberg" Friese, the mission's former commander, out with a broken foot, knows about the danger to his crew. Unknown to anyone, he's sneaked into the restricted zone.
