really liked it
bookshelves: military, psychology, sociology, non-fiction
Read in March, 2009

although i don't agree with his overall views on the war, he did bring the dualities of trying to both wanting to escape from the terribleness of war yet still finding himself drawn to it and the associated feelings of coming back and finding that he no longer fits in society. An excellent introduction into the mindset of todays soldier.
