Where does The Silence of War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As a member of the 2/7 unit that was deployed to Helmand Province in Afghanistan
this book is very close to me, for me and my brother Marines this is the first and probably only outlet we have to let America at large hear our voice about our war. If one has been searching for a source to get a sense of perspective about the war in Afghanistan, I recommend this book first and foremost.

What other book might you compare The Silence of War to and why?

Storm of Steel by Ernst Junger.

Which scene was your favorite?

Probably the one where Terry get's shot at by about 4 RPG rockets, then gives the shooter the finger and tells him "Fuck you!!! You can't hit shit!!!!"

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

Yes.

Any additional comments?

All I can say I have said it is my sincere hope that Americans seeking to understand a bit better what their veterans have experienced read this book.
