    Story
    (178)

    "The war tried to kill us in the spring," begins this breathtaking account of friendship and loss. In Al Tafar, Iraq, 21-year-old Private Bartle and 18-year-old Private Murphy cling to life as their platoon launches a bloody battle for the city. In the endless days that follow, the two young soldiers do everything to protect each other from the forces that press in on every side: the insurgents, physical fatigue, and the mental stress that comes from constant danger. Bound together since basic training when their tough-as-nails sergeant ordered Bartle to watch over Murphy, the two have been dropped into a war neither is prepared for.

    Buzz says: "Sad and Unforgettable"
    "Terminology sometime vague for non military reader"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Yellow Birds?

    General layout of surrounding, difficult to get a good mental discription of surroundings raison de terre: (reason for being there).


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The attitude of the state of the author's motivations was overlooked. What was the objective?


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The continutity of events: realtive to the rational outlook of the author. The discriotion of the flora and fauna.


    If you could rename The Yellow Birds, what would you call it?

    The foundation or objective was not stated clearly described. A
    Title: What was objective this small group of military persons? Title: The Objective of the mission?


    Any additional comments?

    This was a reasonably good description of the main theme of warfare but not the longterm reason or objective of the military objective. Was the objective successful?
