Merci!   Here is a summary:

- none of \\ \linebreak or \newline change a paragraph, they just start
a new line

- with \linebreak, LaTeX tries to justify the resulting text, not with
\newline

- \linebreak can take an argument to let LaTeX decides whether the line
should be broken or not.  The default \linebreak always triggers a
break, but \linebreak[2] will let LaTeX decides depending on whether
the result is acceptable or not, and \linebreak[0] prevents any line
break...

- \\ can take two arguments: one star and one digit.  The star prevents
the line break to trigger a page break, and the digit lets you add a
vertical space between the two lines.

In environments like \flushleft \flushright \centering \raggedleft
\raggedright, \\ doesn't have its normal definition (whereas \newline
behaves normally).

- \newline is the version of \\ with no argument

HTH,
