Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Critical acclaim for From Baghdad with Love:"A story that is both tender and thought-provoking—candidly portraying the ugly conditions in wartime Iraq, while also describing Kopelman's (and his fellow Marines') growing attachment to a scruffy stray puppy." —Amazon.com Review "Heartwarming." —USA Today "Not just a seasonal heart-warmer. It is a provocative examination of an issue that resonates deeply." in the wake of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay: Do 'softer' values, such as mercy for the weak, sabotage military morale or strengthen it?" —Washington Post"A tale of radiant joy ... that eschews sentimentality. ... The story of Lava's journey out of Iraq is exciting, but it's to Kopelman and Roth's credit that it's not nearly as harrowing as the story of what the dog left behind." —Publishers Weekly
