Good but uneven

by greebs on May 10, 2007

This is a series of eighteen stories -- non-fiction, despite what some apparently are claiming -- about John Crawford's tour of duty in Iraq during this current war. In no uncertain terms, it's an amazing book, but short enough to read in a day or two. The stories are raw, sometimes heartbreaking and sometimes funny. Crawford left for the war three weeks after getting married, and though he doesn't ever write a story specifically about the strains that put on his new marriage, the point comes across crystal clear. It's not all about the doom and gloom of war, but suffice it to say this is not going to be on the Army's Recommended Reading List.
