An omnibus edition with the Forever War, Forever Free, and Forever Peace. The first written in the '70s as a look towards post-Vietnam vets and how they were affected by war. Specifically that the world around them continued moving forward while they were "stuck" in war with no real perceived changes (other than war and death). The world that the soldiers return to is never the same one that they left. He tells that story by the time dilation of travelling at near relativistic speeds and thousands of years pass between missions. Eventually the war is over and mankind has moved on to a group mentality that the soldiers can't really identify with. The 2nd book is afterwards as the soldiers try to get comfortable on a "reservation" for non-group minds. They don't want to stay and hijack a space ship to take another relatistic journey to far in the future where mankind has perhaps evolved further or even disappeared. They don't make it - but rather meet something else (no spoilers). The third book is set at the beginning of the world and deals with the revolution that starts the group mind through "jacks" directly into your brain. I think the first book is classic and strong. The 2nd and 3rd were weaker - but explored themes that the writer wanted to show that were left over from the first. Good stories - but not as original or strong as the first.
