In the year 3000, there are no countries, no cities... Earth is an empty wasteland. In eight domed mining installations scattered across the globe, vicious Psychlo aliens grind out the mineral resources of the planet whose population they utterly destroyed a millennium ago. The scant few remnants of humanity hide in villages and remote areas, an endangered species on the brink of extinction.
Apathy and superstition have suppressed all hope when one man, Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, dares to leave his village in search of a better life. Against all odds he marshals the last survivors to join him in a desperate attempt to drive the alien Psychlos from this world before man is lost forever.Bridge - 1st Edition - 4th Printing
A saga of the year 3000St. Martin's Press - 3rd Printing
Battlefield Earth is an enormous epic of adventure set in the year 3,000, 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.
