There he is reunited with Marygay, who had been discharged much earlier and had intentionally used time dilation to age at a much slower rate, hoping and waiting for Mandella's return. The epilogue is a news item from the year AD announcing the birth of a "fine baby boy" to Marygay Potter-Mandella.
These early paperback editions have "a white cover showing a man in a spacesuit with a sword, with symbolic clocks all around," according to the author, with alternatively the first hardcover edition featuring a large hourglass with planets falling through it. The edition restored many expurgated sections, primarily dealing with the changes that befall human civilization over the course of William Mandella's life. In , Avon published the version that Haldeman called "definitive," with "everything restored" and "a less funny cover illustration.
It featured as the first novel re-printed in the series, and the cover shows a close-up of Marygay Potter with soldiers and spaceships in the background. This is the same version as the Avon publication and has the same Author's Note. The cover depicts a futuristic gun barrel stuck into the ground with a smashed spacesuit helmet placed on top. The author's note at the start of the book describes the edition as containing the definitive versions. It included not only the military details but also the difficulty of coping as a lone heterosexual woman with a society where same-sex relations are the inflexible norm.
The cover art depicts a soldier in a spacesuit in a jungle environment. The cover art depicts a soldier in a war torn setting looking down at the helmet of a fallen comrade. Sprague de Camp, for example, worked together at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Time passed, and in the s a novel appeared, The Forever War , which was written by newcomer Joe Haldeman, a member of a new generation who was shaped by a very different war. The book, with its bleak assessment of the military and warfare in general, had a profound impact on the field.
Regarding writing, Samuel L. That is exactly the impact The Forever War had on me. I was in my third year at the U. Coast Guard Academy, and bewildered by the social changes I was seeing in the country around me. I had joined up in the waning days of the Vietnam War, and even though they were no longer drafting people, I still remember my draft number being picked. We had all watched the helicopters carrying our embassy staff out of Saigon, our last involvement in a demoralizing conflict.
To many people, serving in the military was no longer an honorable profession. The gung-ho military adventures I had read in my youth had not prepared me for this.
But I still had an interest in military science fiction, so when I saw a paperback edition of The Forever War in a local bookstore, I snapped it up. It had a man in a spacesuit on the cover, surrounded by old timepieces and with a saber across his lap at the time, I thought the sword was as symbolic as the clocks, not realizing it would play a role in the tale.
I remember reading it in large gulps, and feeling throughout that this Haldeman guy really knew what he was talking about. And I was not alone. The book sold very well, was critically acclaimed, and won both the Nebula and Hugo awards. War came to Vietnam in World War II and continued in the wake of that conflict, as the local population revolted against French colonial rule.

The Forever War (The Forever War, #1) by Joe Haldeman
The draft was a polarizing force in society, and many people, especially younger people, turned against the war, and the military in general. This made the homecoming of veterans very difficult, as they were already demoralized by their service in a bloody and difficult struggle, and were often treated with derision and contempt upon returning to the U.
