"It's the best writing I've seen on [War] since J. Glenn Gray's 1959 classic,The Warriors: Reflections on Men in Battle. . . . Junger's sketches of the men are deft, his ear for their quirky speech (aided by video recordings) spot on . . . This splendid book should help the rest of us understand them—and war itself—a little better." —Philip Caputo, The Washington Post The New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Storm gives readers a breathtaking insight into the truths of war—the fear, the honor, and the trust among men. Now, Junger turns his brilliant and empathetic eye to the reality of combat—the fear, the honor, and the trust among men in an extreme situation whose survival depends on their absolute commitment to one another. 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 daily basis.
