A good read and view of the 82nd Airborne in 2003 from a reporters point of view.
This was quite an interesting read, if only because there are so few modern military histories. Yet, the all too modern wars in Iraq and Afghanistan go on.
The best parts of the book, I thought, are the author's all too human reactions of the genteel 21st century American suddenly thrown into the violent feudal age of an unfolding battleground.
I found Zinmeister's protesting the lack of respect for America's soldiers a bit over the top.
Yet, I found myself whole-heartedly agreeing with so many of his basic premises.
(Besides, who knew that the so-called looting of the Baghad Museum is a myth?)
I enjoyed this book.
