Future Weapons of War - Martin H. Greenberg and Joe Haldeman

The cover here looks like space soldiers out of a computer game, or something like that. However, this is not, given Haldeman as an editor, a kill-'em-all marines in space sort of thing. Only one story really has military geek technobabble to the max, otherwise it is is all pretty good, and Rusch's story is excellent and chilling.
