    In a word: Excellent. Informative and poignant!

    In a word, this book is excellent. Captain Boudreau takes us on a journey, not only through the streets and countryside of Iraq during a "war", but also, honestly and movingly, through his own inner struggle as he searches within himself to reconcile his early years as a committed Marine infantryman to his existence in what we call "normal daily life." You will learn much from this book: about War; about the "war" in Iraq; about contradictions (not only in "war", but in all of us); and especially about how one man/soldier has bravely attempted to deal with the internal turmoil which results from these contradictions. And, you will become engaged and stay engaged through the entire book.

    A true must read, a look into the abyss and the Hell of war.

    If you have ever wondered what it would like to be " boot's on the ground " in our current situation/occupation in Iraq. Purchase this masterpiece, I was unable to put it down and read it again to make sure important lessons were seared into my brain. Pro war, anti war or neutral. This novel well test your will and makes sure that you will always question the right and wrong approach to providing your own personal opinion on Iraq and the war on terror in general. Mr. Boudreau is not afraid to where his heart on his sleeve and it is not a pretty picture. I gurantee your vision and interaction with veterans of any conflict that our brave soldiers that are back home or still in the field will change forever. Please pass the word on this epic tome, you will find that you will be thanked for a reality check.

    An informative, poignant story. A 'must-read.'

    In a word, this book is excellent. Captain Boudreau takes us on a journey, not only through the streets and countryside of Iraq during this 'war', but also, honestly and movingly, through his own inner struggle as he searches within himself to reconcile his early years as a committed Marine infantryman with his existence in what we call 'normal daily life.'

And, you will become engaged and stay engaged through the entire book. Again: Excellent!
