In a militaristic future society, embarking on it's first intergalactic war, we follow mobile infantry soldier Jaun Rico. From his almost accidental joining of the Terran Mobile Infantry to his battles on distant planets, the action is punctuated throughout by a thought provoking onslaught from Heinlein of political and social commentary on issues such as corporal punishment, the justification and use of military power, and a person's place in and duty to society.
