In WAR Sebastian Junger gives breathtaking insight into the truths of war-- the fear, the honor, and the trust among men. 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. Through the experiences of these young men at war, he shows what it means to fight, to serve, and to face down mortal danger on a regular basis.

I have read several reviews on this book. It is a timely topic and a valid point of view. It is the type of book everyone should read. Audio form is great for us, because my husband will be able to listen to it and we can discuss it.
