American soldiers serve willingly. They risk their lives so the rest of us can be safe. The one small thing they ask is that they not be sent into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary. But after being lied to about weapons of mass destruction and about the connection between al Qaeda and Iraq; after being forced by stop-loss orders to extend their deployment; after being undertrained, underequipped, and overworked long after George Bush declared Iraq Mission Accomplished, these soldiers have something to say.From his famous 2003 Oscar acceptance speech to his record-breaking documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. But in this audiobook, Moore gives the spotlight to the real heroes of protest: the men and women who have fought in Iraq and want the American public to know how they feel about their mission and their commander in chief. Moore also fields letters from veterans of other wars and mothers, wives, and siblings of our soldiers in the field. They also express their anger and frustration, their tears and pain, and their hopes and prayers.Impassioned, accessible, and moving, these are letters that reveal the true hearts and minds of the men, women, and families on the front line.… (mais)

En Cartas desde el frente, Moore refleja la realidad de la guerra entre Estados Unidos y Afganistán, por medio de cartas escritas por militares de la guerra, veteranos de otras guerras y familiares de éstos.

I was looking foward to this book, but my 'uh-oh' antenna went off reading the introduction, which was very "well everyone with any sense agrees with me" by Michael Moore. The letters then seemed to be "Michael Moore, you are right, and i am writing to you to tell you you are right". Which is very boring.

This book would have been much more interesting if there had been some background on the letter writers. To me, this became a long list glorifying Moore rather than a true insight into varying views within the ranks of those serving in Iraq. ( )

You should watch Fahrenheit 9/11 documentary before reading this book. 90% of the letters were written in response to the movie. The letter from Specialist Willy titled ‘President Doesn’t Care’ reminded me of the Bush Doctrine when he wrote that his platoon sergeant said ‘If you decide you want to kill a civilian that looks threatening, shoot him. I’d rather fill out paperwork than get one of my soldiers killed by some rag head’. Isn’t that sound familiar? Yes. Bush himself said a similar phrase. It all goes back to the doctrine of reprisal and pre-emption. This is the attitude Mr. President has towards the interpretation of Article 51 of the UN Charter which justifies self-defense for the use of force prohibited under Article 2(4). Everyone knows how Bush played his game, I’m not gonna boil my blood and get angry over this. I’m in total agreement with Jay’s letter titled ‘Whare are the WMD’s? Why Are We Really Over In Iraq?’ He gave a definition of TERRORIST which spelled – the systematic use of violence to create a general climate of fear in a population and thereby to bring about a particular political objective. He put his opinion on the definition that Mr. Bush fits the criteria. Meanwhile Jay Perkins (letter titled ‘I Call Myself An American’) stated that he can’t see any valid or clear connection between al-Qaeda and Iraq. In theory, there are two types of international disputes – dispute between two nations and dispute between an individual with its own state. The al-Qaeda is definitely the second type. Therefore there is no valid reason why US should ‘punish’ the entire Iraq because of one individual’s action. Al-Qaeda is just a terrorist group like Jihad and Taliban. The thing I can’t understand is that US portrays themselves as a peace loving nation by introducing Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and other operations with pleasant name, but every year US allocated a huge portion of fund in defence budget and also the only country with major advances in military technology. OK. I got too carried away when reviewing politic books. Anyway, back to the book. I doubt the creditability of this book because selected letters are published. The entire book is bound with letters opposing Bush and supporting Moore. I believe when there is an open discussion, there will be at least one on the extreme left, one on the extreme right or one who sits on the fence. What happen to other letters, Mr. Moore? Michael Moore himself practices freedom of speech on his book, website, etc. I think he should leave some room for other people to practice their right in freedom of speech as well. Certainly he has deleted the letters that damned his idea. But I understand that this book is published to upheld the spirit to put the Bush Administration down. Therefore, this book is an altered truth that hides the other side of the story.
