The Forever War: The science fiction classic and thought-provoking critique of war

Joe Haldeman

5 Reviews

Rated 0

S.F. Masterworks, Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Science fiction

One of the very best must-read SF novels of all time.

Private William Mandella is a reluctant hero in an interstellar war against an unknowable and unconquerable alien enemy. But his greatest test will be when he returns home. Relativity means that for every few months' tour of duty centuries have passed on Earth, isolating the combatants ever more from the world for whose future they are fighting.
