The 20th Anniversary Edition. |
A towering masterwork of science fiction adventure and one of the best-selling science fiction novels of all time, L. Ron Hubbard's "Battlefield Earth" opens with breathtaking scope on an Earth dominated for a thousand years by an alien invader -- and man is an endangered species. From the handful of surviving humans a courageous leader emerges -- Jonnie Goodboy Tyler -- who challenges the invincible might of the alien Psychlo empire in a battle of epic scale, danger and intrigue, with the fate of Earth and the universe in the balance.
A breakaway New York Times and perennial international bestseller, "Battlefield Earth" has been voted among the top three of the best one hundred English language novels of the twentieth century by the Random House Modern Library Readers Poll, and has won worldwide critical acclaim, including the U.S. Golden Scroll and Saturn Awards, Italy's prestigious Tetradramma d'Oro (for the story's inherent message of peace), and France's Gutenberg Award for the novel's exceptional contribution to the genre.
