Publisher's Summary

Using humor, pop culture, and even musical references, Michael Friedman re-creates the wartime experience in a narrative that is part memoir, part journalism, part military history. The years in question were pivotal ones, seeing the perfection of a type of warfare that would eventually be exported to Afghanistan and Iraq and has come to seem like the only kind of warfare in existence - wars in which there is never any clear victory, but not quite enough lives are lost to rally the country against it. The dramatic events on this one small hilltop sent out ripples that continue to emanate worldwide.

    "Amazing Book"

    I will give a more detailed review on Amazon. If you are interested in the Middle East and war, this book is a must read. The author is an amazing writer and story teller. The story itself was incredible. I'm so disappointed it's over but glad I read the Wall Street journal review. I'm really surprised this is on top of the best seller list.
