Where are you going?
Give me a second to explain. Geez… OK, so yes, there is an interstellar war with human troops in high-tech armored suits battling an alien enemy on distant planets.
I know it sounds like another version of Starship Troopers or countless other bad genre sci-fi tales that copied it, but this one is different. Hell, when it was published in it won the Hugo, the Locus an This book is a military style space opera with …. William Mandella has been drafted as one of the first troops that will be sent to fight the Taurans.
There are points in space called collapsers that are like wormholes that will transport your ship to a distant area in the universe instantly, and humanity is fighting the Taurans to use them. Both races like to build bases on nearby planets to establish control of the area around the collapsers.
Mandella gets through training and manages to survive the first battle with the Taurans. While the collapsers provide instant space travel, the ships still have to get to the nearest one and that means months of travel at near light-speed. It turns out that Einstein was right wiexzna relativity and traveling at near the speed of light makes time do some funky things.
So while the troops on the ship feel like a journey only took months, years have passed for everyone else. So Mandella and his fellow soldiers may have a huge advantage or be severely outgunned. Mandella finds himself losing all his family, his friends and his lovers to war or age. He is increasingly out of touch with Earth and the rest of humanity.
The army continues to promote him, mainly wieczzna his seniority has reached ridiculous levels after centuries of service. One of the things that isolates Mandella is that homosexuality becomes the norm due to Earth overpopulation.
Even the slang spoken by other soldiers becomes incomprehensible to him. Increasingly lonely and out of sync with everyone around him with almost wljna chance of surviving his enlistment, Mandella nurses the hope that the war will someday end during the large gaps of time he skips as he travels to his assignments.

More 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 unfold. And the welfare recipients get a bag of dope with their check.
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 history.
Haldeman, himself a Vietnam War veteran, brings an empathetic perspective to his futuristic warrior portrayal. Thought provoking and original, this is a MUST for science fiction fans. Reading this again, I think for the third time, reaffirmed my love for this book.
The Forever War – Wikidata
Reading after a couple of decades the first time in HS, and then again only a couple years later in college I see more of Haldeman’s subtle humor. I can also see, from a 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 Vietnam.
His 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 book. One of my all time favorites and Again: I need to read more from him. 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, wiecznna 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. View all 20 comments. Catch is often cited as one of the great books about the futility and inherent paradoxes of war. I think this is easily its equal, but is often overlooked because it is dismissed as “just” science fiction. By using the tropes of SF, Haldeman vividly illustrates not only the psychological effects on the combatants, but also the desperate disassociation wrought between the “soldiers” and the rest of society – his reference point was the Vietnam veterans, but it could apply anywhere and anywhen.
There are some moments of genuine horror too, especially when you start wieczja understand what the narrator is telling you. A serious contender for my top ten books of all time. View all 6 comments.

I love audiobooks, but I am beginning to think that short sci-fi books are not really the ideal for this format. Books that focus wiezna the action or thrills of military campaigns are anathemas to me. This book is more of an exploration of the nature and principles of warfare than about details of battles though there is some of that also ; basically it is an anti-war novel.
The book I finished reading just before starting this reread of The Forever War is Brave New Worldit is interesting to compare the two as sci-fi books.
To me the Aldous Huxley book is not really sci-fi as the emphasis is on the social satire and the futuristic halddeman and sci-fi tropes are tools for the author to communicate his cautionary message. The Forever War is unabashedly sci-fi, certainly it is an allegory of the Vietnam War which the author Joe Haldeman served in. The book is very well written and the first person narrative tone gradually changes from a sardonic tone in the early chapters to a more matter of fact tone and then a melancholic tone towards the end.
The book is too short and densely plotted or all the characters to be fully developed but the protagonist William Mandella and narrator is very sympathetic and believable.
The middle section set on Earth is really my favorite part wwojna the book, with the drastically changed culture and social mores. If I have one complaint it is the overlong section which tells the story of the final battles with the aliens Taurans, personally I always find scenes of military engagements very dull, though you may feel differently. Fortunately when that is over we arrive at a wonderful twist and denouement, I do not find the eventual fate of Mandella and wiefzna girlfriend quite believable but it is by no means unsatisfactory.
While I was reading about the final battles in the later chapters I was speculating whether to rate this book at 4 stars because I found those battle scenes a little tedious, but after finishing it I feel a 5 stars rating is a more accurate representation of my esteem.

This ahldeman military-flavoured bootcamp-to-war Science Fiction in its finest Conscript-to-brutal bootcamp-to-faraway-alien-war. This is military-flavoured bootcamp-to-war Science Fiction in its finest form, as refreshing and thought provoking as it no doubt was when it was released in Wojma Starship Troopersthis book is a template for the lesser works that have followed it.
The story is a simple one. William Mandella is conscripted and sent to fight in a brutal, bloody war with an alien species. The battles he must fight are so far from Earth that the time-dilation effect of high-speed space travel turns his subjective months at war into years on Earth, his years into decades. It really is a landmark classic of Science Fiction. This is obviously a classic in the realms of sci-fi and of anti-war novels, and another book with thousands of reviews that I can’t improve upon, but I’ll just offer a couple of insights.
Wieczna wojna (komiks)
One of the primary concepts from the book is the main character returning from space travel complete with Spacial Relativity to an Earth that was completely foreign to him; it was a massive dose of culture shock which progressed deeper and deeper the further the story went. I was in the US Air Force for 22 yea This is obviously a classic in the realms of sci-fi and of anti-war novels, and another book with thousands of reviews that I can’t improve upon, but I’ll just offer a couple of insights.
I was in the US Air Force for 22 years, and can say without a doubt that returning to the US after a 4-year overseas assignment to the Philippines, that this type culture shock is a real thing. I was stationed there fromand basically immersed myself in the Philippine culture.
When I returned to the US in mid-summerthere was so much that had changed in 4 “short” years. Imagine being a military member sent to outer space, traveling through colapsars wormholesand returning to Earth a century or more in the future while you’ve only aged a few weeks or months. The other thing that the author captures very well is the lack of understanding of the “big picture” at the lowest enlisted level. This is something that will always be a factor in any military, even though you constantly hear, “think of the military objective”.
That objective is so obscure and far-off that the peons have no idea why they do what they do.
