About this book

A timely book that explains the next revolution in military weapons - directed-energy weapons - and how tomorrow's wars will be fought. In science fiction, futuristic soldiers are often shown wielding light emitting weapons - Flash Gordon used a ray gun, Captain Kirk carried a phaser, and Darth Vader brandished a light saber. But, today, 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 in your TV remote control. They're called "directed-energy weapons" - lasers, high-powered microwaves and particle beams - and they signal a revolution in weaponry, perhaps, more profound than the atomic bomb. The first directed-energy (DE) weapons are being tested right now, and their deployment is planned in the very near future.

In "The E-Bomb", author J Douglas Beason, a leading US expert in directed-energy research, will explain in clear and non-technical prose, these exotic new weapons, and answers the questions that we'll all want answered: What is Directed Energy? How do DE weapons work? What can these DE weapons do? And are these weapons safe to use? As the once-imagined weapons of the future begin to appear on today's battlefield's, "The E-Bomb" will help explain how and why the future is now.
