PEACE AND WAR: The Omnibus Edition

JOE HALDEMAN    Book Number: 87945    Product format: Paperback

In one volume for the first time ever is this classic novel of epic future conflict 'The Forever War', with its sequel 'Forever Free', and the companion novel 'Forever Peace'. William Mandella is a reluctant hero, drafted to fight in a distant interstellar war against unknowable and unconquerable aliens. His greatest test will come when he returns to Earth. Relativity means that every time he returns home after a few months' tour of duty, centuries have passed on Earth, making him and his fellows ever more isolated from the world whose future they are fighting. When he returns for the last time, he finds humanity has evolved into a group mind called Man. Living a dull life in an autocratic and intrusive society, missing the certainties of combat and feeling increasingly alienated, the veterans plan an escape. But when their ship starts to fail, their journey becomes a search for the Unknown. 2043. The Ngumi War rages, fought by 'soldier boys', indestructible machines operated remotely by soldiers hundreds of miles away. Julian Class is one of these soldiers, and for him war is truly hell. But he and his companion Dr Amelia Harding have discovered something that could literally take the universe back to square one. For Julian, the discovery isn't so much terrifying as tempting. This is the definitive original version as originally written which won the Hugo and Nebula Awards and was written back in 1974. SF Masterworks omnibus paperback, 697pp.
