Sinopsis y resumen del libro REDEPLOYMENT
The book "Redistribution" by Phil Klay, winner of the National Book Prize in 2014, takes readers to the forefront of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, asking us to understand what happened there and what happened to the soldiers who returned.
Interwoven with themes of brutality and faith, guilt and fear, impotence and survival, the characters in these stories struggle to make sense of chaos.
In "Redistribution," a soldier who has had to shoot dogs because they were eating human corpses must learn what it's like to return to domestic life in the suburbs, surrounded by people "who have no idea where Fallujah is, where three members of their platoon died.
In the "After Action Report," a first-class soldier requests atonement for a murder he did not commit, so that his best friend can be released from the burden.
A Mortuary Affairs Marine recounts his experiences in collecting the remains of U.S. and Iraqi soldiers.
A chaplain sees his understanding of Christianity and his ability to provide comfort through religion, tested by the actions of a fierce colonel.
And in the dark and comical "Money as a Weapon System," a young Foreign Service officer has the absurd task of helping Iraqis improve their lives by teaching them to play baseball.
These stories reveal the intricate combination of monotony, bureaucracy, camaraderie and violence that make up a soldier's daily life in war, and the isolation, remorse and despair that can accompany a soldier's return home.
"Redistribution" is about to become a classic in the tradition of war writing.
Across nations and continents, Klay brings devastating relief to the two worlds inhabited by a soldier: one of extremes and the other of losses.
Written with hard-eyed realism and impressive emotional depth, this work marks Phil Klay as one of the most talented new voices of his generation.
