Man And Machine
Series Editor: Mike McPhail


The plan had been to un-man the battlespace; replacing flesh and blood with steel and carbon fiber. Machines, both remote and autonomous would fight and be destroyed in the name of freedom; sparing the troops at the cost of the nation's treasure.

However as with any arms races, the opposing side's technology eventually catches ups to yours, resulting in the need to put lives back in harms way on the frontline; to deal with, and adapt to the unknown, as only human can.
