This “listen” is not riveting. Not even close. But the content is so compelling and so relevant to the events in the last ½ century, I am bumping it up a star. It discusses our (USA) state of endless war mostly from a military and political perspective. It could have benefited from a more in-depth discussion on how pressure from private industry also perpetuates our dilemma. If this content could be transformed into a riveting best seller it could change the world.
If you have a father, a sibling, or a love of adventure, you will enjoy this book. Narration and story were excellent!
Ho Hum. This book is either really slow or really intense. Pretty much what I image the war in Afghanistan is like. It somehow lacks a commitment to any particular point- but maybe that IS the point. Don't read it if you want to crystallize your views on why we should or should not be in Afghanistan. Do read it if you want a glimpse of the psychology and intense camaraderie that develops at the battlefront. It is seems to be an objective view of what life is like for some of our men and women in Afghanistan.
