Format: Paperback
Peter van Agtmael's "2nd Tour I Hope I don't Die" is an incredible testament to the photographers unique vision, and to the men and women who have been charged with fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Through the books bold, compassionate photography and insightful, emotional texts I was given in insight into the intimate world which Mr. Van Atmael shared with soldiers and Marines in theatre and back at home. It's with great thanks to photographers like Mr. Van Atmael that we as a public here in the United States have a chance to witness, and feel, the difficulties faced overseas by the civilians and combatants involved in those conflicts.

The backstory on this book is as impressive as it's contents. Highly recommended as a vivid reminder of what's actually going on "over there".

Format: Paperback
Not for the faint-of-heart, this book presents a stunningly vivid account of the personal cost of war. Parents should go through it before showing to their teens and children, but anyone considering entering active duty should see it before deciding to sign. This is not an anti-war book, rather a testimony to the character, bravery and honor of those who serve, but it's an unflinching view of the life of deployment in a war zone. I'm reminded of the reaction to the movie "Saving Private Ryan".
