What really shone through this story was the deep emotional cost of service in war, the strength of character required and forged, and the caliber of person it requires.
The story itself is well written, Parnell starts slow—developing the characters of the men he loved, making you care for them—and when his writing picks up to match the tempo of their increased combat you are rocked by the tragedies and humanities of these men all the more for the slow start.
I never appreciated my friends in uniform more than during and after this audiobook. Thank you, Lt. Parnell. For your service in Afghanistan as well as the service of insight this book gives to those of us living behind the shield of our military.
