I enjoyed this book. I have been to Iraq (2003-04) and to Afghanistan (2007-08). As people have asked me about my experience, and I try to explain something that foreign to Americans that have never seen anything other than their own towns, I struggle to put my experiences into terms that they can at least somewhat imagine a portion of what I saw/experienced. This is not a war story, but I understand his concepts on a more personal level. He puts into words that which I just haven't been able to describe. Mr. North does an excellent job of cutting through the combat and getting "into" the soldiers point of view. I really enjoyed this, and if there is anything you would like to ask a soldier (other than combat specifics) this is a great reference.
