Mobile Suit Gundam

Awakening, Escalation, Confrontation

Frederik L. Schodt


The Gundam creator's own vision of his spectacularly successful cult franchise, in a new edition for hungry fans.

In the world of the near future, an epic war rages between the Earth Federation and the rebel space colonies that call themselves the Principality of Zeon. The most fearsome weapons of the new era are the robotic vehicles knows as mobile suites, armored giants with the firepower of battleships. 

The Federation has pinned its hopes for victory on its advanced mobile suit prototypes, but when a young cadet named Amuro Ray becomes the pilot of the Gundam mobile suit, he discovers that machines alone will not be the decisive factor in the conflict. For a new stage of human evolution is dawning, and the future—if humanity has a future—may well belong to the Newtypes.

"A great read."
