2.0 Bill the Galactic Hero
A complete military scifi satire. Bill the rube gets conned into joining the army. After surviving many trials, Bill becomes inured and does what he needs to to get away from the front. Ends up going back to his homeplanet and tricking his brother into joining. Bill just can't get a break.
