Recommended this excellent book to two book clubs. The realistic approach to modern warfare, especially the role of American female soldiers, is too real for many to take.

Publisher's Weekly provides an excellent review of this book. I was immersed in the complexities of the characters - often finding myself believing it was based on actual individuals. A deeply moving and thought-provoking novel about the horrors of war and the effects it has on the human psyche.

This is a novel about the meaning of war. it is even more relevant as it tackles a controversial war, where players were fighting in a place where they are strangers to it! I liked this book because I believe it is a deep and honest portrait of an absurd war. As they are caught in fighting a war for purposes and ideologies which are either absurd or at best against the regular proper human reason, each of the major hero is trying to find her/his own purpose.
