It's hard to imagine a more quintessential military thriller.

It's all here:

The minimal characterisation. The paranoid plot twists. The massive action scenes. The high concept premise and high tech info dumps. The hint of romance.

The short sentences

Ray Bradbury
“The books are to remind us what asses and fool we are. They're Caeser's praetorian guard, whispering as the parade roars down the avenue, "Remember, Caeser, thou art mortal." Most of us can't rush around, talking to everyone, know all the cities of the world, we haven't time, money or that many friends. The things you're looking for, Montag, are in the world, but the only way the average chap will ever see ninety-nine per cent of them is in a book. Don't ask for guarantees. And don't look to be saved in any one thing, person, machine, or library. Do your own bit of saving, and if you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for shore.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Desiderius Erasmus
“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”
Desiderius Erasmus

Albert Einstein
“A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.”
Albert Einstein

Isaac Newton
“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.”
Isaac Newton, The Correspondence Of Isaac Newton

Ray Bradbury
“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there.

It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
