Filkins is the only American journalist to have reported on all these events, and his experiences are conveyed in a riveting narrative filled with unforgettable characters and astonishing scenes. Brilliant and fearless, The Forever War is not just about America's wars after 9/11, but about the nature of war itself.

"Trapped in a forever war by 9/11, in Spiral Mark Danner describes a nation that has been altered in fundamental ways. President Bush declared a war of choice and without an exit plan, and President Obama has proven unable to take the country off what he has called its "permanent war footing." The War on Terror has led to fourteen years of armed conflict, the longest war in America's history. Al Qaeda, the organization that attacked us on 9/11, has been "decimated" (the word is Obama's) but replaced by multiple jihadist and terror organizations, including the most notorious--ISIS. Spiral is what we can call a perpetual and continuously widening war that has put the country in a "state of exception." Bush's promise that we have "taken the gloves off" and Obama's inability to define an end game have had a profound effect on us even though the actual combat is fought by a tiny percentage of our citizens. In the name of security, some of our accustomed rights and freedoms are circumscribed. Guantanamo, indefinite detention, drone warfare, enhanced interrogation, torture, and warrantless wiretapping are all words that have become familiar and tolerated. And yet the war goes badly as the Middle East drowns in civil wars and the Caliphate expands and brutalized populations flee and seek asylum in Europe. In defining the War on Terror as boundless, apocalyptic, and unceasing, we have, Danner concludes, "let it define us as ideological crusaders caught in an endless war.""--

Veterans of the intergalactic Forever War must brave an alien universe to escape mind-control slavery in this thrilling far-future sci-fi adventure. On virtually every list of the greatest military science fiction adventures ever written, Joe Haldeman’s Hugo and Nebula Award–winning classic, The Forever War, is ranked at the very top. In Forever Free, the Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master and author of the acclaimed Worlds series returns to that same volatile universe where human space marines once engaged the alien Taurans in never-ending battle. While loyal soldier William Mandella was fighting for the survival of the human race in a distant galaxy, thousands of years were passing on his home planet, Earth. Then, with the end of the hostilities came the shocking realization that humanity had evolved into something he did not recognize. Offered the choice of retaining his individuality or becoming part of the genetically modified shared Human hive-mind, Mandella chose exile, joining other veterans of the Forever War seeking a new life on a wasteland world they called Middle Finger. Making a home for themselves in this half-frozen hell, Mandella and his life partner, Marygay, have survived into middle age, raising a son and a daughter in the process. Now, the dark truth about the colonists’ ultimate role in the continuation of the Human group mind will force Mandella and Marygay to take desperate action as they hijack an interstellar vessel and set off on a frantic escape across space and time. But what awaits them upon their return is a mystery far beyond all human—or Human—comprehension . . . In Forever Free, Joe Haldeman’s stunning vision of humankind’s far future reaches its enthralling conclusion in a masterwork of speculation from the mind and heart of one of the undisputed champions of hard science fiction.

The Hugo and Nebula Award winner that William Gibson called the “best science-fiction war novel ever written” and its sequel—plus a powerful story that links the two. This collection brings together Joe Haldeman’s widely acclaimed military science fiction classic, The Forever War; a novelette featuring hero William Mandella’s life partner, Marygay Potter; and the epic concluding novel to the saga. The Forever War: Conscripted into service for the United Nations Exploratory Force, Pvt. William Mandella fights for Earth light years away against an alien enemy. After surviving a harrowing two years of combat, Private Mandella and his fellow soldiers return home only to discover decades have passed due to the time dilation caused by space travel. Society has evolved into a civilization beyond the veterans’ comprehension, offering them no place to go but back into the military and a never-ending cycle of interstellar conflict that occurs over months while Earth ages centuries. “A Separate War”: Marygay Potter, reassigned and separated from her lover, William Mandella, continues fighting in military engagements across the stars—all the while planning how she and Mandella can reunite despite the time and space between them. Forever Free: Human beings have become a single hive-mind. Unwilling to sacrifice his individuality, William Mandella has joined other war veterans in exile on the half-frozen world known as Middle Finger, hoping to live in peace with Marygay and their children. But Humanity needs the genes of veterans to continue their evolution, forcing Mandella and his family to escape on an odyssey that will alter their lives forever.
