In Pharaoh's Army: Memories of the Lost Warby Tobias Wolff, Luann Walther (Editor), Luann Walther (Editor)

I had to read this book for a school project and absolutley adored it! It was filled with a dry humor that I could really relate and just an incredible read. I could not put it down. Well worth reading.
