American science fiction writer, born in Oklahoma, educated at the University of Maryland. He received much acclaim for his first novel, The Forever War (1974), which transposes Vietnam into the mid-future and presents the world of war from the soldier's point of view. Other works on different themes have followed but the short stories collected in Vietnam and Other Alien Worlds (1993) return to the subject of his earlier work.
