Nicely surprised by this...,
This review is from: War (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
.. thought it was going to be another "were american, the world cant work without us" type of book. To a large extent, it was (you would be fooled into thinking that the war in Afghanistan is US vs. the world) but I really enjoyed the almost humble writing style of the author. Really connected with the characters in the book, even although most were just fleeting acquaintances, and I really liked the connection the author built with the regular soldiers.
Very enjoyable book. I wish every footballer would read something like this to understand the true meaning of the word "hero" - but the way soldiers put their lives on the line is quite astonishing... and something we should all be proud of.
