With each book bound in genuine leather and accented with 22kt gold it′s easy to see why Easton Press is one of our most popular reues. First published in 1974 and winner of the 1975 Hugo and Locus awards Forever War by Joe Haldeman kicks assMore than just a book about a futuristic war Haldeman describes a society built around the codependency of the industrial military complex and with a fluid dynamic socio economic culture that is fascinating to watch unfoldAnd the welfare recipients get a bag of dope with their checkHaldeman s protagonist William Mandella is in an elite military group that travels light distances to battles Transportation being what it is less than light speed it takes decades even hundreds of years for the troops to reach the fight and meanwhile society changes around him When he reaches the end of his career thousands of years have passed and he does not even speak the same language as his fellow citizens and the war he signed up for is ancient historyHaldeman himself a Vietnam War veteran brings an empathetic perspective to his futuristic warrior portrayalThought provoking and original this is a MUST for science fiction fans 2016 RereadReading this again I think for the third time reaffirmed my love for this book Reading after a couple of decades the first time in HS and then again only a couple years later in college I see of Haldeman s subtle humorI can also see from a 2016 perspective how this could be seen as homophobic An extremist shock value idea in the 70s could be seen as insensitive now but I get what he was doing and in context he was making a statement about nonconformism and parallel changes with his experience coming back from VietnamHis hard SF ideas like relative time and the stasis field are great but his statements about cultural and sociological changes are what makes this a great bookOne of my all time favorites and Again a MUST read for fans of the genre and a damn fine work of 70s antiestablishment literature I need to read from him 2018 addendum This is such a great book and he s such an amazing writer Some friends and I were talking about some of his other books but I m always drawn back to this one I recall the later passages were he doesn t even speak the same language as his unit the time has separated them so much but this may also be a metaphor for senior leadership being out of touch Like many great books this works on multiple levels I ll reread this again it s that good
