    A well written crime!

    I will be very honest, the book is well written, but paints a terrible picture of the American soldier. I do not know if I am reviewing the book or the content of the character of the man who wrote it. But, I will give it a shot.
    I believe the public has a right to know the good and bad of what happen in Iraq, but the story of a soldier who lied, cheated, stole and did drugs only reflects poorly on all of us. A golden rule, if you get away with it, take it to your grave. I would love a JAG Officer to read this and follow up with the punishment that fits the crimes.
    I was in Baghdad, March 2004-2005, I did not see soldier dishonoring their service and country, but I have no doubt their were pockets and places where some did. If you want to see the under belly of the US Army, this is a great read. I do not recommend it. There are many great examples of faithful service out there. I recommend you find one of those!
    The story is gripping and like watching a train wreck. You can not stop reading, because you want to see just how bad it can get. You want to see what is around the next corner, but you really do not want to know. We all have our favorites, this book is not mine.

    one of the most awful books I've had the misfortune to read

    I was forced to read this book for two of my college classes this semester, and it is horrible. I'm not a soldier and I will not claim to be omniscient, so I'm not sure if it is factually accurate or not, but the style is poor. The story is rife with swearing and profanity, the Americans are portrayed as callous, trigger-happy idiots with absolutely no respect for the civilians around them, and Crawford seems like a very whiny individual that doesn't want to accept the consequences of his actions. I don't find the story inspirational or enlightening, and I don't think that even the most liberal reader would classify this as 'literature.' It sucked.
