Gabriel Gadfly is one of the best modern poets in America. This book is full of poetry and is great for anyone who loves poetry, or for those who are new to the world of poetry. I've had the opportunity to meet Gabriel Gadfly at a poetry reading and he read from this very book! Get it and enjoy.

I really don't have the words to describe the wonderfulness of this book. A wide range of places and peoples and times to cover the topic of war. It is brutally honest. It is poignant. It is real. He holds nothing back. These can be read quickly, but should be read often to enjoy them fully.

Gabriel Gadfly gets to the essence of war in this important collection. As the wife of a veteran and the daughter of one also I can attest to the authenticity of these voices. Gadfly has accomplished something masterful by including a range of experience that spans time and nationalities....that war is internally fought and becomes an integral part of those fighting.

This is.not a romanticized read. This is the real deal. Read it and cry, experience it yourself. I'm glad I did. Bravo....keep these stories coming.

I don't have words for how thoroughly I enjoyed reading this book. I couldn't put it down. After every single poem I read I would think "That's it. That's the best one in the book!" But then I would turn the page and experience "the best" all over again. Every poem is breathtaking, moving, and evocative. The collection is also beautiful put together. I can't stress how much I'd recommend this book. I make everyone who comes into my house read at least one of the poems from this book, which has now found a permanent home on my coffee table.

This book is dedicated appropriately to soldiers, with the reminder that war is a human thing. It starts with the proud declamation of the committed, the innocent ... "I am only this: ... a mother's son... a father's daughter. I build cities; I bomb them.... I secure and I breach ...I bleed and I staunch. My name is soldier."

Each poem has something to say about both the humanity inherent in those who fight, and the inhumanity of the situation they are in. I was touched by everyone of them.

In particular I was brought almost to tears by the last 2 paragraphs of "Beautiful Like", which reminds us that in the 21st century women do not just wait at home but are also combatants - You are beautiful like nightmares are beautiful... Youare beautiful like "Honey, Mommy might be a little different when she gets bac." "That's okay, I'll still love her Daddy." ... You are beautiful like that.

At the end of the 44 poems, after living through 150 years of war with the soldier, I felt indescribably sad about the loss of innocences of those young men and women who fled whole hearted into the embrace of this vocation.

The last line of the last poem "Wound-Packing" which wonders why we ares till in the warzones of the past haunted me for many days - Why? ... So the ghosts we've left will never be lonely? ... What about the mothers at home?

And the question that lingered and lingered was indeed "Why?" Why do we allow our children to go in the first place? Why do we do this thing called war to each other, sacrificing everything in the name of nations, and principles, ephemera that are not flesh, not blood, not broken spirit.

An anthology that's a must for anyone who wonders why there are wars?

I know Gadfly is a son and grandson of soldiers and honours their calling. It is my hope though that after reading this book, everyone will be sent straight into the embrace of a principled and determined pacifism.

Words sometimes help. These poems do more for the anti-war movement than any pamphlet can.

I am not usually a reader of poetry, but I received a free digital copy of the book for an honest review. The book grabbed me from the first poem. I was struck by the poems' range: across the many decades and the continents, from soldier to civilian, parent, husband, wife child. Most of the poems struck a deep chord and are definitely thought provoking.

This is one anthology that is worth the space on your bookshelf, and your repeated consideration.

Many of the poems in the book"Bone Fragments" moved me to tears many times. They all tell the story of the human tragedy of war, the dreadful conditions and what war does to the human spirit. Gabriel Gadfly's language is almost "beautiful" in its descriptions of the shocking scenes on the battle field, of the deepest feelings of the combatants; and the terrible sadness of death everywhere where war is taking place. I was made to feel so very aware of the fragility of life and the contrast between life and love "the battle field" and life and love at home. Love does exist within the confines of war! Among the scenes of violence and death a particular poem touched me when a truce was called and both sides took some time to share themselves with each other....all of them human beings caught up in the horror of war. For certain, there is no glory in war only tragedy. These poignant poems cut right through to the heart and break it as you read.
Gabriel Gadfly's first book of poetry, Bone Fragments, is a one-follows-after-the-other collection of stories in poetry form, that say war is not only bad, it's wrong, and even worse, is self-indulgent.

If you're new to poetry, this might be a good introduction to the idea that words can be few yet paint a vivid picture.

If I were his Mama, I'd be proud that he wrote it.
