Forever Free Book Summary :

“A well-written and worthy sequel to one of SF’s enduring classics”—the Nebula Award winner The Forever War—now with a bonus story, “A Separate War” (Publishers Weekly). On virtually every list of the greatest military science fiction adventures ever written, Joe Haldeman’s Hugo and Nebula Award–winning classic, The Forever War, is ranked at the very top. In Forever Free, the Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master and author of the acclaimed Worlds series returns to that same volatile universe where human space marines once engaged the alien Taurans in never-ending battle. While loyal soldier William Mandella was fighting for the survival of the human race in a distant galaxy, thousands of years were passing on his home planet, Earth. Then, with the end of the hostilities came the shocking realization that humanity had evolved into something he did not recognize. Offered the choice of retaining his individuality or becoming part of the genetically modified shared Human hive-mind, Mandella chose exile, joining other veterans of the Forever War seeking a new life on a wasteland world they called Middle Finger. Making a home for themselves in this half-frozen hell, Mandella and his life partner, Marygay, have survived into middle age, raising a son and a daughter in the process. Now, the dark truth about the colonists’ ultimate role in the continuation of the Human group mind will force Mandella and Marygay to take desperate action as they hijack an interstellar vessel and set off on a frantic escape across space and time. But what awaits them upon their return is a mystery far beyond all human—or Human—comprehension . . . In Forever Free, Joe Haldeman’s stunning vision of humankind’s far future reaches its enthralling conclusion in a masterwork of speculation from the mind and heart of one of the undisputed champions of hard science fiction. And in the bonus story included in this volume, “A Separate War,” Marygay, reassigned a

La guerre sans fin Book Summary :

Face à la violence du fondamentalisme islamique, la brutalité futuriste de l'Occident: une guerre sans fin. Témoignage saisissant sur le conflit en Irak, ce document exceptionnel est avant tout un livre sur toutes les guerres, comme l'a été Putain de mort sur celle du Vietnam. Grand reporter, correspondant du New York Times en Afghanistan, au Pakistan puis en Irak, finaliste du prix Pulitzer, Dexter Filkins décortique les pratiques sanguinaires des shiites et sunnites, décrit les allégeances et les rivalités entre les factions qui se disputent le territoire, apporte un éclairage inédit sur les motivations des kamikazes. Mais c'est surtout la situation sur le terrain qu'il restitue avec une force rare: des patrouilles dans les rues de Ramadi aux chambres de torture de Saddam Hussein, des cris des insurgés irakiens à la détresse d'un capitaine américain en deuil de son unité... autant d'images apocalyptiques et de rencontres poignantes qui hanteront longtemps le lecteur. Parce qu'il ajoute une touche humaine et un regard distancié aux documents déjà publiés sur le sujet, ce livre s'impose comme une référence icontournable sur la guerre d'Irak.

Making the Forever War Book Summary :

"The late historian Marilyn B. Young, a preeminent voice on the history of U.S. military conflict, spent her career reassessing the nature of American global power, its influence on domestic culture and politics, and the consequences felt by those on the receiving end of U.S. military force. At the center of her inquiries was a seeming paradox: How can the United States stay continually at war, yet Americans pay so little attention to this militarism? Making the Forever War brings Young's articles and essays on American war together for the first time, including never before published works. Moving from the first years of the Cold War to Korea, Vietnam, and more recent "forever" wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Young reveals the ways in which war became ever-present, yet more covert and abstract, particularly as aerial bombings and faceless drone strikes have attained greater strategic value. For Young, U.S. empire persisted because of, not despite, the inattention of most Americans. The collection concludes with an afterword by prominent military historian Andrew Bacevich"--

The Forever War Book Summary :

Private William Mandella is a hero in spite of himself -- a reluctant conscript drafted into an elite military unit, and propelled through space and time to fight in a distant thousand-year conflict. He never wanted to go to war, but the leaders on Earth have drawn a line in the interstellar sand -- despite the fact that their fierce alien enemy is unknowable, unconquerable, and very far away. So Mandella will perform his duties without rancor and even rise up through the military's ranks . . . if he survives. But the true test of his mettle will come when he returns to Earth. Because of the time dilation caused by space travel the loyal soldier is aging months, while his home planet is aging centuries -- and the difference will prove the saying: you never can go home.
