I read Forever War then the 'bridge' store from "A Separate War" from the collection of the same name, then then sequel Forever Peace.
Forever Peace is not the greatest story Haldeman ever wrote but it is still good. It was enjoyable to find out how William, Marygay and several other characters made out in the "Middle Finger" colony.
