"Gripping and surpassingly original. It's Starship Troopers without the lectures. It's The Forever War with better sex. It's funny, it's sad, and it's true." Cory Doctorow

Earth itself is a backwater. The bulk of humanity's resources are in the hands of the Colonial Defense Force, which shields the home planet from too much knowledge of the situation. What's known to everybody is that when you reach retirement age, you can join the CDF. They don't want young people; they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living. You'll be taken off Earth and never allowed to return. You'll serve your time at the front. And if you survive, you'll be given a generous homestead stake of your own, on one of our hard-won colony planets.

Old Man’s War ― John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army, with only the vaguest idea what to expect. Because the actual fight is far more difficult than he can imagine―and what he will become is far stranger.

The Ghost Brigades ― At first, Jared is a perfect soldier, but as another man's memories slowly surface, Jared begins to intuit the reasons for their betrayal. Time is running out: The alliance is preparing its offensive, and some of them plan worse things than humanity's mere military defeat.

The Last Colony ― Retired from his fighting days, John Perry and his wife, Jane, are pulled back into the political arena, and into the thick of interstellar politics, betrayal, and war.
