I did a tour in Afghan and one in Iraq (Afghan first, if it matters). This book is the quintessential book on what it’s like to be a soldier during our modern wars and in our modern times, for our support services soldiers. Funny, uplifting, infuriating, maddening. Honestly, I can’t even describe how much Anthony nailed it what it’s like to be over there. Not even the best journalist, or even the best commander, can capture what it’s like on the ground. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a little bit of the ground truth.
