9780099523048: The Forever War: Dispatches from the War on Terror
Review:

" Visceral, evocative and impassioned, reminiscent of the best journalism from a previous American overseas quagmire: Vietnam. It's standard practice in cases such as this to rank the book in question against Michael Herr's classic, Dispatches, and for once the comparison holds up" ( GQ)

" Filkins's compassionate and unvarnished book is a vitally important one" ( Daily Telegraph)

"The scope of his vision, the characters he encounters ... and the events he witnesses give this the feeling of The Wire for real and gone global" ( Arena)

"As broad, vivid and unbiased a portrait of Iraq as has yet been written ... a fine, compelling, brilliant book" ( Mail on Sunday)

"Outstanding... Written in taut, pared-down prose, his book roams across a desolate urban battlefield where innocent civilians are dying like flies" ( Daily Mail)

From the Publisher:

There are already many books on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and about the War on Terror - but this is something very different. In The Forever War, award-winning New York Times correspondent Dexter Filkins does not analyse how these wars happened and why, or where they have succeeded or failed; instead, he captures with searing immediacy, the human experience - and tragedy - of war.

We meet Iraqi insurgents and American soldiers, Afghan rebels and Taliban clerics. We travel to deserts and glaciers and mountaintops, to the scene of public amputations and executions, to suicide bombings and into the homes of the bombers themselves. The result is a visceral understanding of the War on the Terror, its victims, the people who fight it and the way these people feel.
