WAR by Sebastian Junger

Post  Marcus Cantrell on Tue Jun 01, 2010 9:43 am

Anyone read this book? It's about Sebastian Junger hanging out with Battle Company of the US Army. He and 30 other men of this company are at the KOP (Most dangerous place in Afghanistan) for about a year, and he's running around with them in body armor and civvies.
This is probably the closest to fighting you'll get without actually being in combat.

Look up another book. "Don't Ever Call Me A Hero" by then-Corporal Mark Perna, USMC. It is a first hand, first person account of his tour to Iraq in 2006 as a U.S. Marine Corporal. He's now retired, after having reached the rank of sergeant, and while his tour in Iraq was his first in the country -- he had been deployed to Afghanistan twice before, so he was no stranger to combat.

They were collectively known as “The Rock.” For one year, in 2007–2008, Sebastian Junger accompanied 30 men—a single platoon—from the storied 2nd battalion of the U.S. Army as they fought their way through a remote valley in eastern Afghanistan.Over the course of five trips, Junger was in more firefights than he could count, as men he knew were killed or wounded and he himself was almost killed. His relationship with these soldiers grew so close that they considered him part of the platoon, and he enjoyed an access and a candidness that few, if any, journalists ever attain.
