Second best book I have ever read. As someone who just applied for OCS, it was great insight to what I am getting myself into. It doesn't cake it like a recruiter will. Lt. Fick tells you how it is, even the bad parts. I have and will continue to recommend it to everyone I encounter. Read this book if you are interested in seeing more about the Military today and how its not what you think.

A good and thorough follow-up to Evan Wright's book covering much of the same ground though from a single personal POV. It is interesting to read an embedded reporter's POV of a Marine unit and then ... Read full review

I had read "Generation Kill" which was the reporter's view. It was interesting to read about the same incidents from the Marine's point of view. Read full review

Not a book that I would have bought and read on my own, except that it was the required pre-work for a wildland fire leadership course that I am taking. Turns out to have been well written by an ... Read full review
