To me, this book was an inverted version of Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game. Ender is a child sent up to space, kept in the dark, to fight without his knowledge or consent, aliens that are a great distance away. John Perry is a senior citizen that signs up to fight and is told exactly who, where and what his enemies are, and fights them in close-range skirmishes. Both books are great sci-fi reading, although I do like Ender's Game a bit more than Old Man's War.
