Brilliant. No wonder Haldeman won a Hugo and Nebula award for Forever War (1974) - among a list of accolades. Forever Peace captures the unique writing style from the Forever War even though it was written 20 years later. If you are looking for a science fiction novel that will capture your imagination and appear vividly in your mind, look no further. Military Science in the purest sense, yet revealed within the impossibly powerful machines are the mortal men and women who undergo certain death to operate them. Haldeman writes from experience in the military himself and elements of his experiences find their way into the text giving his stories a disturbing edge like you rarely see in Hollywood (think Saving Private Ryan). "When you gaze long into an abyss .." - Nietzsche

The method by which peace is attained in this book is abhorrent and implausible. I simply don't buy it.

This was the question that had been in the back of Julian's mind from the time Marty first described the Twenty: maybe war is an inevitable product of human nature. Maybe to get rid of war, we have to become something other than human.
