Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman by Jon Krakauer
Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman

Eleni, January 7, 2010

This book may have changed my life. As a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan, and someone who has served 7 years in the Army, I was amazed and horrified at what I found in this book. I had my reservations and doubts about the institution that is the Army in the past, but I never expected events of this caliber to have been going on behind the backs of the American people.

I was also pleasantly surprised to find that Pat Tillman was an intelligent man, passionate and full of interest in things and people around him. I had not expected a book about his life to maintain my interest; I had almost written this book off before I even began it. Talk about a change of heart! This may well be one of the most important books that I have ever read (and I am an avid reader), and it actually moved me to tears (literally) twice.

Read this book. You need to know the facts presented here; you need to know the things that the government is capable of. You should know how amazing many of the men and women in the Armed Forces are, and how deeply and painfully their leadership can let them down.
