    Story
    (382)

    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
    Would you listen to WAR again? Why?

    This is a book that brings truth, sometimes uncomfortable truth to the current conflict in Afganistan.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best thing about the story is its realism. It is not attempting to glorify or condem, but to present an unvarnished reality. You as the reader then need to make your own assessment of why we are there. The book tells of a platoon of soldiers serving at the "pointy end of the spear" in Afganistan. It takes you thru their daily lives, how they survive from day to day, fight against bordom, the terror of combat, the brotherhood of soldiers.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was also the book author. He is defintely a writer. His naration is toward the wooden, but as you know he is also the author, his style is a part of the realism. I would best describe as being told a story, by a friend while sitting at a bar enjoying the evening. He is not trying to sway or convince, just tell his truth.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was very moved by the story. I celebrated the platoons victories, I morned their losses, I better understand their lives
