My guess is that most Americans don't understand what troops really go through during war times. This book is a gritty history of the Iraq war written by men and women who have bravely served there. I had to read it in doses, as I found myself wondering if my own son will experience some of these things when he is deployed soon, and that was a little bit hard to take.

This book is not for the faint-hearted, but it is for anyone wanting to know what American have and are experiencing in Iraq. Graphic in description and language, What Was Asked of Us, is a book that will stay with you, giving you, perhaps, a greater appreciation for the troops and their families who are making sacrifices to keep America free, and war off of our own shores.
