Junger writes of a war where 19 year olds are mentored by 23 year olds. A 27 year old goes by the nickname "Pops." Junger is at his best telling the stories of the young men of the company in which he is embedded. His story is less even when he is telling of his own reactions to what he witnesses. If you find yourself reminiscing about Vietnam it is small wonder. But this is not a book about policy or politics but the young men who put their lives on the line for each other on a daily basis. At its most basic Junger has told a tale of brotherhood, courage and, yes, even love of men who would sacrifice their own lives for their companions.
