Pasarile galbene

by Kevin Powers, Daniela Rogobete
 
Doi soldati - Bartle, de optsprezece ani, si Murphy, de douazeci si unu de ani - sunt aruncati in mijlocul asediului orasului Al Tafar, o inclestare sangeroasa care le dovedeste ca nimeni nu e de fapt pregatit pentru razboiul real. In zilele de cosmar care urmeaza, cei doi tineri au de infruntat deopotriva atacurile insurgentilor, epuizarea fizica si tensiunea

Overview

Doi soldati - Bartle, de optsprezece ani, si Murphy, de douazeci si unu de ani - sunt aruncati in mijlocul asediului orasului Al Tafar, o inclestare sangeroasa care le dovedeste ca nimeni nu e de fapt pregatit pentru razboiul real. In zilele de cosmar care urmeaza, cei doi tineri au de infruntat deopotriva atacurile insurgentilor, epuizarea fizica si tensiunea provocata de pericolul permanent. Surprinzand cu deosebita acuitate si efectele razboiului asupra familiilor ramase acasa, Pasarile galbene este o marturie zguduitoare, printre primele capodopere ale literaturii americane dedicate razboiului din Irak.
