Aliens: Colonial Marines Technical Manual (Paperback)


The United States Colonial Marines. Ultimate troubleshooters equipped with state-of-the-art firepower, capable of power projection across the vast expanse of deep space.

But on a dirtball colony planet known only as LV-426 the unthinkable happens. 

The Marines lose.
