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

- \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

- \\ 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
