Cheval Noir #14;The Forever War by Joe Haldeman and Marvano

Dark Horse Comics

Vietnam War veteran Joe Haldeman’s groundbreaking 1974 novel about an interstellar war used the time dilation effect caused by space travel at relativistic speeds to express in science fictional terms the alienation experienced by returning American soldiers.

Robert Heinlein, author of “Starship Troopers” (1959), is said to have called Haldeman’s book “the best future war story I’ve ever read.”
