Add this text: ” L. Ron Hubbard wrote the novel’s introduction on October 1980, and noted that Battlefield earth “may be the biggest SF novel ever in terms of length.” in the lead paragraph AND “Battlefield Earth often echoes Planet of the Apes, the film Franklin Schaffner made in 1968 fro Pierre Boulle’s novel, according to writer Robert Fullford" in the critical response section.
I retrieved the information from the following reference: Fulford, R. (2000, May 09). Battlefield earth: A true cult classic: Scientology founder L ron hubbard built empires in his pulp fiction, too.
