I liked the book a lot but hated the narrator. I agree with the last reviewer than a male reader would have been better. But in addition, this reader dragged on--I wished I had a control to speed her up. I will not choose this reader again.

I have a personal relationship to this story... my son was there. He was in Charlie Company until just prior to deployment, when he transferred to the HHC as a sniper. In Sadr City, he was in the group responding to assist Hines. Both Hines and Reynolds (Big Country) attended my son's Ranger graduation, after which we spent an evening together. Their character is adequately described in the book.
Personally, the story helped me put into context the chaos described in my son’s phone call that night after he returned to Camp War Eagle.
It is a non-judgmental story, providing only the facts. You will sense the emotional turmoil for everyone involved and be amazed that so much could be written about so little passage of time.
It’s only downfall… the narrator. Her attempts to provide a male voice were very ineffective. A male narrator should have been strongly considered.
