The vids made it look so clean.  Sanitized warfare, explosions of metal and never of meat.  It wasn’t like that.  There was blood all over the Mech Wars, but it was in the cockpit, away from civvie eyes.  Every one of those boats was stained with it.  We were shooting at pilots, not their vehicles.

They kept tabs on us.  Guidance computers locked into government mainframes.  Deserting was tough.  It took me three weeks to hack my boat.  I flew off in the middle of a battle, shut off my comm.  My own boys shot at me as I went.
