The Forever War, by Joe Haldeman

This is a classic, award -winning science fiction novel.  But since I'm relatively new to the genre, I just came across it.  Wow - it certainly deserves the accolades.  This is not so much a novel about space war as it is a novel that conveys the futility of war; think "All Quiet on the Western Front ."

Mr. Haldeman wrote this in the 1970s and the dates he set in the novel have already passed by now. So that's a bit odd, but it hardly detracts from the story.

Highly recommended.
