    lquilter: Both books show the pointlessness and horror of war, and have open-ended endings, leaving plenty of room for discussion about potential and possibility.

Es la guerra. En el desierto, dos agujeros. En cada agujero, un soldado. Son enemigos. El enemigo mata sin razón. La guerra es culpa del enemigo. Pero, ¿quién de los dos es "el enemigo"?

El enemigo es cruel, el enemigo no tiene piedad, la guerra es culpa de él... Lo dice el Manual del Ejército. Pero... ¿y si resulta que el manual del enemigo dice lo mismo?

Un libro sobre la irracionalidad de la guerra y contra la lógica de la disciplina militar.

This touched home for me because my dad was in the military, and all I wanted was peace during the war so he could be with his family I can only imagine what the soldiers feel being away from their family.

Summary: This book was about two soldiers in holes fighting each other. One day, the soldier goes into the other one's hole and realizes that that soldier has been told lies. He longs to end the war with the other soldier because they both have families and are human.
Opinion: This book was pretty sweet. It teaches a good lesson about war but can also be used on a smaller scale just about getting along with people in the classroom. The illustrations are cool and I'm sure kids would love this book. ( )

In this moving picture book, award-winning collaborators Davide Cali and Serge Bloch present a fable for our time about two lonely soldiers facing each other across a barren battlefield. What each discovers, as the story unfolds, is that the enemy is not a faceless beast, but rather a real person with family, friends, and dreams. (amazon)

Italian author Davide Cali and French illustrator Serge Bloch join forces in this powerful picture-book examination of the subject of warfare, and the construction (and deconstruction) of the concept of 'the enemy.' Narrated by a soldier who is stuck alone in a foxhole, exchanging occasional fire with his enemy, also stuck alone in a foxhole, The Enemy uses a fairly simple, straightforward text, full of declarative sentences, to undermine the simplicity of distinctions such as "us" and "them," "human" and "beast," and most of all "enemy" and "friend." The soldier-narrator believes that he is essentially different from his enemy, mostly because his manual has told him so, informing him that his enemy is inhuman in his cruelty. But a late-night sortie to the enemy's foxhole shows him that this unknown opponent is strangely like him...

Originally published in France in 2007 as L'ennemi, and then translated into English in Australia that same year, The Enemy was recently reprinted in this new 2014 edition. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to read it, as I found it a powerful and moving exploration of the use of propaganda and misinformation in inciting wars and keeping them going. Although I don't believe that all sides of every war ever fought are exactly the same, and equally right, there is no question in my mind that the frequency with which we as a species resort to violent conflict to resolve disagreements would not be nearly so high if it wasn't so easy to convince us that our opponents were different from us in some essential way - to convince us that they weren't quite human like us. Davide Cali's text is deceptively simple, seemingly stating facts while simultaneously undermining those facts, while Serge Bloch's cartoon-style artwork captures both the absurdity and tragedy of the situations being described in the text. This is an advanced picture-book, one which addresses sophisticated ideas and disturbing realities, so I wouldn't recommend it to younger children, who are usually the audience for picture-books. Rather, I would recommend The Enemy to children eight or above, with the proviso that educators and parents should be ready to discuss it with concerned youngsters. ( )
