    One of the greatest examples of war journalism ever written, Michael Herr's clearheaded yet unsparing retellings of the day-to-day events in Vietnam take on the force of poetry, finding clarity in one of the most incomprehensible events in our modern era. A National Book Critics Circle finalist and highly acclaimed upon its first publication, Dispatches still retains its resonance as America finds itself amidst another military quagmire.

    Darwin8u says: "One of the GREAT war memoirs of ALL TIME!"
    ""Dispatches" paints a brutal picture."

    Herr paints a brutal picture of the Vietnam experience. If this is a part of history you are fascinated by or interested in, you must listen to this work.

    When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, "I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."

    Karen Knabe says: "Truly the story of a Hero"
    "Adam Brown was one tough man."

    The ongoing history of the modern American military hero is something I just can't seem to get enough of. Fearless paints an impressive picture of one such hero. Adam Brown was one tough man!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Story

    Excellent audio book. Narration is outstanding! Sobering, profane, and humorus, Marlantes' story paints a disturbing portrait of the boots on the ground during the Vietnam war.

    Included here is a selection of recordings of Federal Aviation Administration, Defense Department, and American Airlines communications from September 11, 2001. You will hear air traffic controllers, military aviation officers, airline and fighter jet pilots, as well as two of the hijackers, during two hours of that historic morning.

    Gillian says: "This is Real World, Not Exercise"
    "Terrible and Excellent at the same time."

    Very raw and disturbing. There is no way to avoid this. If this is something you want to be aware of, I recommend listening.
