by Kevin McLaughlin
Almost every war comes down to resources. The side that has them, wins. Deny key resources to the other side, and you can crush them.
Nicholas Stein is forced to stand by, helpless, while the enemy uses a new ship to destroy the US colony on Luna.
The loss will devastate his nation's ability to wage war - unless Stein can find a way to balance the scales.
