10) Naked to the Stars, by Gordon R. Dickson

Bought this at Beneluxcon on Ken MacLeod's recommendation. A short book of the proto-military-sf sub-genre, but with rather a subversive message in that context, that the military solution is not enough and a political accommodation is necessary once the conflict is over (if, that is, you actually want the conflict to end). Published in 1961 so the almost-human aliens are either Japanese or Koreans (probably Japanese).
