Brought together in one volume for the first time is the classic novel of epic future conflict 'The Forever War', its sequel 'Forever Free', and the companion novel 'Forever Peace'. William Mandella is a reluctant hero, who must 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 for whose future they are fighting. When Mandella 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. In the final novel 'Forever Peace' it is 2043. The Ngumi War wages, 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 terrifyingly tempting. The novels were first published 1974, 1997 and 1999. Superb heavyweight quality omnibus paperback, 697pp.
