Very difficult war
The emotional challenges that are faced by our troops because of this very difficult method of war.
I have not listened to another performance by Sebastian Junger.
War: Afghanistan Terror
This is a powerful and insightful book into the lives of the American 2nd Platoon in the Korengal of Afghanistan. This book helped me to see inside the consequences of war in the lives of the young men who are fighting it from the front lines. While reading this book I have found myself telling nearly anyone who would listen about some of the difficulties that these men faced. War is an unbelievably difficult thing and we would be wise to pursue it with extreme caution. Sebastian Junger takes his reader into the lives and psyche of these men to find men who are serving with courage and distinction, but are not really concerned with the political issues or broader military issues of the war. They mostly care about the men that they serve with, and they love one another in a way that is difficult or nearly impossible to duplicate outside of the difficulties of war. This book should be read by people far and wide if for no other reason than to understand more about the consequences of sending young men to war.
