The fact that the Mantel PMC in Haze pushes Nectar onto its soldiers as an enhancing drug is well known. It sounds simple enough, but the allegory here is relevant to war veterans who were fed drugs to make them fearless and unquestioning; because Nectar, as it turns out, is both a blessing and a curse.
Nectar wasn't so useful when we were stuck inside closed underground environments, but when you're fighting in dense foliage, you'll wonder how you ever managed without it."
