    This book has a few chapters reveling in the technical achievements of today's UAV producers and noting the decline of the traditional jet fighter pilot's career path. These are good fun, but just as interesting are the followup chapters where he asks questions like 'is a UAV pilot actually a warrior?' and 'how does warfare change when one side is in absolutely no danger of being harmed?' Definitely a worthwhile read.

  • On Apr 26 2017 Jason Kristufek read this book
  • On Dec 20 2016 Tom Copeland (USCG) read this book and commented:

    Kind of reminded me of Tom Clancy's "Red Storm Rising" except with newer tech. Some of the same "missile offense vs missile defense" themes. Good use of drones, which is what you'd expect from Singer given his earlier book "Wired for War".
