Synopsis

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards: He went off to war, but the Earth he came back to wasn’t the one he left behind.

Man has taken to the stars. Deep in space, humans discover the fearsome Taurans after a transport ship is destroyed. To combat the threat, humanity sends in the United Nations Exploratory Force—a highly trained unit built for revenge. Conscripted into the service, physics student William Mandella fights for his planet against the alien force light years away. However, because of the relative passage of time when one travels at incredibly high speed, the Earth he returns to after his two-year experience has progressed decades and is foreign to him in disturbing ways.
 
Based in part on the author’s experiences in Vietnam, The Forever War is regarded as one of the greatest military science fiction novels ever written, perfectly capturing the alienation that servicemen and women experience even now upon returning home from battle. The Forever War shines a light not only on the culture of the 1970s, the era in which it was written, but also on our potential future.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Joe Haldeman including rare images from the author’s personal collection.

This book along with Starship Troopers and Enders Game are the ultimate SciFi books. Old Mans War is a great homage to this book but you can't beat the original.
