A Great Read May 21, 2013
By John Brier
This is a great read. It slowly winds you into the head of this young Marine officer as he is faced with learning his men, his mission and along the way a great deal about himself. His story so adequately describes the war, his war as tedious, waiting and moments of all hell breaking lose. This is a look at war up real close and personal. All the while his thoughts of home and his family a punctuated with the reality of the rain, mud and muck of a terrible war in a terrible place.
