It also did a weird thing with alternating first- and third-person for no good reason. I didn't see much relation to The Forever War, either, except for the word Forever in the title.
I did not like Forever Peace either and was very surprised when it won a lot of prices. One relatively recent book by Haldeman that I liked a lot is Camouflage.
