Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A correspondent furnishes a best-selling account of the battle against Islamic fundamentalism, from the rise of the Taliban, to the terrorist attacks of 9/11, to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, offering a compelling study of the people involved from all sides of the conflict. Reprint. A New York Times Best Book of the Year and a Nation Book Critics Circle Award finalist.


Review:

"Now, in the tradition of DISPATCHES, with the publication of Dexter Filkins's stunning book, THE FOREVER WAR, it seems the journals of the brave correspondents assigned to the Middle East will take their place as the pre-eminent record of America's late-imperial adventures, the heart of these heartless exercises in disaster, maybe some consolation to those maimed and bereaved in them.... The work Filkins accomplishes in THE FOREVER WAR is one of the most effective antitoxins that the writing profession has produced to counter the administration's fascinating contemporary public relations tactic....Filkins uses the truth as observed firsthand to detail an arid, hopeless policy in an unpromising part of the world. His writing is one of the scant good things to come out of the war."

Robert Stone, New York Times Book Review, 09/12/2008

Review:

"[Filkins's] focus is on the human cost of war; he isn't out to lambast U.S. policy or strategy (except implicitly), and so readers anywhere on the political spectrum can respond to his writing.... What Filkins has to offer is stories--dozens of them. He's a master of the moment, of the concrete, of the texture. Where others try to explain, he wants you to know what being there feels like....I couldn't put this book down."

Craig Seligman, Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.), 10/05/2008
