Published in: Once all cards are placed on the table, Mandella takes in the information and gets to reminiscing. The Army discovers that the collapsars-stars provide little to no heat, therefore, the group must be ready for battle in the most hospitable of environments. Forever War. Neal Stephenson.
A reluctant conscript drafted into an elite Military unit, Private William Mandella has been propelled through space and time to fight in the distant thousand-year conflict; to perform his duties and do whatever it takes to survive the ordeal and return home.
But "home" may be even more terrifying than battle, because, thanks to the time dilation caused by space travel, Mandella is aging months while the Earth he left behind is aging centuries It is, for all its techno-extrapolative brilliance, as fine and woundingly genuine a war story as any I've read.
The Forever War is one such book, and like those others still carries with it that air of recognition and possibility. Haldeman, a veteran, is a flat-out visionary. Simply extraordinary. A classic to grace either genre. That it happens to be set in the future only broadens and enhances its message. Anyone who talks about the glory of war has obviously never read it.

Inarguably one of the genre's great novels, it is also among the finest novels ever written about war. Submit Search. Successfully reported this slideshow.
