Wow. Just wow.
This book is everything science fiction should be. The storyline is gripping, the characters are fully human; the philosophical issues it presents are deep and thought-provoking. It has definitely become a favorite, one I am likely to read again.
mmm... Good Review.
I just like how there is no hidden subtext or "meaning" Everythign is displayed front and center.

^ My interpretation of that part was that the "shoot everyone before winning" mentality had been bred into the soldiers from the beginning of Battle School. Every soldier was being taught to do it, not just by the teachers, but by the student commanders as well, and it's very difficult to exit a pattern of thinking, especially such a long-lasting one.
