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.

Every American needs to read this book. Nothing is more frustrating than having conversations with people that have such strong opinions on subjects they are unwilling to learn. This book may change some of those opinions. Strong reporting that allows you to form your own opinion. As most Americans may feel, I may never truly understand the complexities of tribal nations, but this book has shed some light on some of my own ignorances of the 2 wars we are fighting. Thank you Dexter
