    Junger turns his brilliant and empathetic eye to the reality of combat - the fear, the honor, and the trust among men in an extreme situation whose survival depends on their absolute commitment to one another. His on-the-ground account follows a single platoon through a 15-month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley.

    Jeffrey Dame says: "Why we fight re-visited"
    "Seminal book on war in Afghanistan in this era."

    What made the experience of listening to WAR the most enjoyable?

    I was fortunate enough to hear the author as a guest speaker at a dinner event. I purchased the book out of curiosity, but what a great book of one's man first hand observation of daily battles in Afghanistan. The author's insight on the culture of the land and the culture of the American's who defend our freedom and the freedom of others.

    The author himself, how he was driven to keep writing under such dangerous circumstances to bring the stories and accounts of what takes place in a real battle.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the author was actually shot at and the bullets started to whiz by him.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not cry or laugh, but it brought the reality of war and the bravery of our millitary to real life.


    Any additional comments?

    I had an opportunity to send a personal note to the author and thanked him for writing this book.
