I just finished reading this and came across your post while looking at reviews. Agreed, it's a fantastic book. I've done three embeds in Iraq as a writer (2 of them with Marines in Fallujah), and this is about as good and realistic as it gets for an infantry-level view of one of the redder red-zones of post-invasion Iraq.


Thank you for the review. I have this Fresh Air podcast still in my listening queue and I just moved it up. I look forward to hearing it. I am curious when you have a bond between your men and then must focus on killing and communication to save the group, which logically makes sense, how do you reconcile the emotional side when a decision has to be made to forgo the wounded?
