Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young soldier's personal account of the United States' involvement in Iraq.John Crawford joined the Florida National Guard to pay for his college tuition--it had seemed a small sacrifice to give up one weekend a month and two weeks a year in exchange for a free education. But one semester short of graduating, and newly married, he was called to active duty-to serve in Kuwait, then on the front lines of the invasion of Iraq, and ultimately in Baghdad. While serving in Iraq, Crawford began writing short nonfiction stories, his account of what he and his fellow soldiers experienced in the war. At the urging of a journalist embedded with his unit, he began sending his pieces out of the country via an anonymous Internet e-mail account.

Synopsis:

A National Guardsman who served in Iraq describes how he was called to active duty shortly after his marriage, recounting his unit's experiences during and after the fall of Baghdad, a period marked by terror, camaraderie, and disillusionment.
