This book is amazing. Its like a handbook for counter-recruiters, i.e. people who go out and speak the truth about the military and its lies. The first third of it is a mind-blowing description of how far the military goes to recruit youth. The second section provides a wealth of suggestions and annecdotes for counter-recruiting. And the last section is all about building people power, which is a sustainable movement that confronts not just the Iraq or Afghan wars, but an imperialist system that regularly uses wars to bully the rest of the world.
Army of None should be handed out in high schools across the nation. If I had the money, I would do so. The US military has billions of dollars to spend on recruitment every year, and they need every penny of it. How else could they make murder so appetizing to the youth of our country? They hand out key fobs, coffee cups, and ball caps, and all they ask in return is the lives of our children. What a great deal, huh?
Army of None is one of the best tools we have to fight back against the war machine and those who support it. That, and teaching our kids to avoid the military at all costs.
Full of blatant lies and misinformation such as - military recruiters never go into elementary and middle schools. They're looking for high school juniors and seniors. Elementary and middle schools would be a waste of time.

I am a bleeding liberal veteran of the United States Air Force (E-4). I have found glaring errors in some of the statistics & sources for this book. I recommend caution when relying on this source for information.
I'm sure this book is a good read but the numbers are incorrect.
