One of the biggest science fiction novels ever written—a super thriller science fiction masterpiece and New York Times bestseller. If you loved Star Wars, you loved Star Trek, or you just love science fiction, you’re in for a feast when you read this milestone book.
Battlefield Earth is an enormous epic of adventure set in the year 3000, when the future survival of what’s left of the human race is at stake. When Jonnie Goodboy Tyler decides to venture out of the small and dwindling community of humans barely surviving in their Rocky Mountain retreat, he has no thought of challenging the order that for a thousand years has held the Earth prisoner to the oppressive alien race of the Psychlos.
The Psychlos and their vast intergalactic mining corporation have dominated and exploited all known galaxies for centuries, ruthlessly destroying races who dare to resist. How one man—with the aid of a few surviving Scotsmen—tackles the greatest malignant power in the universe makes for a sprawling adventure of thrilling heroics, full of dangerous underground work, interplanetary wars, intergalactic financial intrigue, monster races, and complex political manipulation spread across a vast canvas of epic scale. “Pulse-pounding mile-a-minute sci-fi action adventure that does not stop.” —Brandon Sanderson, NYT bestselling author of The Way of Kings
