Synopsis

National Bestseller

One of the Best Books of the Year:

New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Boston Globe, and Time

 

An instant classic of war reporting, The Forever War is the definitive account of America's conflict with Islamic fundamentalism and a searing exploration of its human costs. Through the eyes of Filkins, a foreign correspondent for the New York Times, we witness the rise of the Taliban in the 1990s, the aftermath of the attack on New York on September 11th, and the American wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Filkins is the only American journalist to have reported on all these events, and his experiences are conveyed in a riveting narrative filled with unforgettable characters and astonishing scenes.

 

Brilliant and fearless, The Forever War is not just about America's wars after 9/11, but about the nature of war itself.




From the Trade Paperback edition.

    The Forever War

    I don't know how Mr. Filkins can continue living a 'normal' life after witnessing so much horror. His reporting is unbiased, he leaves it to the reader to determine who's at fault if it's possible to do so. He humanizes the Iraquis, the American troops, everyone he encounters. It's a complex situation but he manages to shed some light on it. I highly recommend this book.
