Alien Stars by C.J. Cherryh, Joe Haldeman, Timothy Zahn
Cherryh: In Downbelow Station earthmen and colonists fought to the death. Now Earth and Union must join forces against an enemy that could not surrender.
Haldeman: One moment they are lords of Creation - the next Joe Haldeman's humans are the helpless prey of unexpected enemies.
Zahn: Timothy Zahn's aliens were obviously primitive - so why were their weapons far beyond any invented by man? From backcover.
Three very different science fiction short stories about war.
The two first stories were okay and had some surprises in them but I didn't like the last very much.
