Gutwrenching. "The Forever War" reads more like a memoir than dry reportage. Dexter's record of his time spent in Afghanistan and Iraq from 1998 to 2006 is non-judgemental. He allows experiences and conversations with soldiers, insurgents, and civilians to speak for themselves, revealing humanity in all its contrasts and contradictions. You, the reader, are left to make sense of chaos. Filkins eye for detail and poignant moments speak volumes, taking war reporting to its highest level. Critics were right to give this one high marks.

One of the best--not to mention most important--books I've read in a long time. It is easily the most vivid and humane account of what's gone on in Iraq that I've seen. Still, I am very glad to be done with it.
