Very good. The book is in very good condition. There may be some wear to the cover with no noticeable writing on the pages. Possible mild book foxing.
Very good. Jacket has light wear or rubbing only.

The battle for Mars was brief and almost bloodless. General Alexander Armstrong led U. N. forces to a stunning victory over what he considered the Russian usurpers of the red planet. He returned to Earth for a hero’s welcome, leaving the cold, sparsely settled world to the scientists – and his twin brother Dr. Augustus Armstrong, new Governor of Mars.
Alex’s Martian conquest was his ticket to the White House. As Infinite Lord and President of the United States, his ambition was complete control of all of Earth – and of Mars!
Gus wanted only to be left in peace to direct his research programs. But as Alex’s power grew, so did the danger that he and his fanatical followers would disband the distant, struggling colony. And Alex wouldn’t hesitate to use force against any who defied him.
Mars must be ready to defend herself, or die.
Gus Armstrong could not know that the slim chance for human independence – even survival – on Mars lay with the frozen remains of an ancient Martian creature, dead for more than two billion years!
