    Ryan Conklin does a wonderful job portraying his experiences as

    Ryan Conklin does a wonderful job portraying his experiences as a grunt in the U.S. Army while serving in Iraq. Throughout the book, he describes his firsthand accounts of what serving in Iraq was like. From the base he was at while in the states to the barren desert-like land of Iraq, Conklin takes you on a personal journey of everyday life in Iraq, Conklin takes you on a personal journey of everyday life in the military.
    What I took out of this book was the brother-like bonds that are formed between Conklin and his buddies; their unique way of being friends and supporting each other through good times and bad. It truly is like no other bond. Even though their job wasn't always fun and exciting, they did it knowing that in some way or another they were helping out and doing their part. Conklin showed extreme patriotism to join the U.S. Army right after the happening of 9/11. What I liked about this book was Conklin's style of writing. He is a first time writer but barely shows that. His writing is not hard to understandand gives us more of a journal type of writing. He makes every situation he is in easily understandable and filled with detail of his surroundings. Reading what he wrote was almost like being there and actually seeing what he was describing. There isn't any negative part about this book. If you're looking for a good account on someone's personal experience in a war zone then this is your book. Conklin does an excellent job in doing everything he can to give you a good look into life in a war zone. If you like books like this then I also recommend checking out Donald F. Myers and his accounts on Vietnam. Overall this book was great and couldn't have been any better. 5 out of 5.

    A REAL LOOK INSIDE DEPLOYMENT

    I am hoping that he writes a follow up. Ryan takes you inside what our young enlisted are going through.
