In a voice at once raw and immediate, Crawford's work vividly chronicles the daily life of a young soldier in Iraq: the excitement, the horror, the anger, the tedium, the fear, the camaraderie. Altogether, the stories slowly uncover something more: the transformation of a group of young college students, innocents, into something entirely different.

You can't handle the truth
I hope more people read this book. Being a service man myself I respect this man. My heart goes out to all serving. When will someone figure out that you can not keep a soldier in action for this length or TIME!! OMG have we not learned anything from our prior wars? Anyway, I love this book. I felt like I was there standing next to this man. He could have been in my unit. I wish I could describe the feelings I felt reading this book. It brings you right back to the time in uniform. Tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart, and pride in the job. I feel so sad and angry, not just for our soldiers, but for the people they are they are protecting. READ this book with caution. If you haven't held a weapon in battle you might not "get it". If you have, I promise you it will bring back memories. For me, I want to remember. I loved that feeling of that close group of people who "got my back". There is nothing like it. This book will only touch the tip of the iceberg of war and the grunt level.

An honest, real account of the Iraq War
This book is a must read by everyone. It does not matter what your position on the Iraq war might be. This Citizen Soldier gives a very honest description of his tour in Iraq. The good and the bad. More than anything, I think it reveals the price that our soldiers pay for their service. My thanks to John Crawford for his service, his sacrifice and his candor.
