The Earth's leaders have drawn a line in the interstellar sand, despite the fact that the fierce alien enemy they would oppose is inscrutable, unconquerable, and very far away.
Reviews & Summaries
William Mandela is recruited into the army to fight an intersteller war against a foe that they know essentially nothing about. The war takes him into battles, and inexoribly into the future as trips have time passing more slowly for the soldiers than for earth, friends, and family left behind.
This passing of time provides the alienation that public disapproval of Viet Nam did, and it is an even clearer case that you can never go home again.
