    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.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed Perfect Storm and Death in Belmont as captivating narratives. I listened to War soon after listening to the book Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes. While I was totally immersed in Matterhorn--of course a novel of war so shouldn't really compare this to nonfiction, I have become immersed in Junger's other 2 books. I listened to War a second time because I thought I hadn't appreciated the commentary/documentary style compared with a novel. The narration was somewhat monotonic to me, so this may contribute to my lesser enthusiasm.
