This review is from: A Nightmare's Prayer: A Marine Harrier Pilot's War in Afghanistan (Mass Market Paperback)
I like a memoir and what made this one stick out for me was the vein of authenticity that runs through the narrative. The author went to Afghanistan possibly naively and probably unsure about what to expect. He tells the tale of 12 months of combat in a Harrier, supporting troops on the ground. He deals with over work and exhaustion and operating way outside his comfort zone.
Its easy to identify with the author and his experiences. Fully recommended and one of the best of its genre (that I have read, anyway) IT doesn't try to make a political point - which is to its credit
