Overview

Central Florida police officer Charles M. Grist is one of the few Vietnam veterans to have served as an enlisted soldier in the Iraq war. In 2004, he volunteered to be the sergeant-in-charge of the protective service detail for an Army Reserve general in Baghdad.

Grist and his unit, the C.O.B.R.A. Team, were based inside Baghdad's Green Zone, but their travels with the general led them along the deadly roads of Baghdad, to the throne of Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon, and through the picturesque hills of Kurdistan. It was a fast-paced life of high adventure, filled with convoys, mortar or rocket attacks, and the constant threats of ambushes or improvised explosive devices.

As a Vietnam veteran, Grist knew that Operation Iraqi Freedom would be his last war. He used his daily journal to record his team's wartime experiences, to document the events that shaped Iraq in 2004, and to preserve the heroic deeds of some of the Army Reserve and National Guard warrior-citizens with whom he served. That journal became the basis for this book.

    A Great Reality Check for the American Citizen

    A real on-the-ground perspective of what is going on in Iraq versus what is politically portrayed through American media. My Last War provides the raw story instead of the dry war statistic. This book helps the non-militant to understand the heart and challenges of a true American warrior. A very well-written book, you will find yourself laughing and crying to the last page.

    My Last War has given me an even greater appreciation for my country and for the men and women in uniform. A great thanks to Charles Grist for taking the time to put together an eye-opening book. Your words and war-time experiences will continue to live on in the hearts of your readers.
