I thought my 12-year old would enjoy this book, as he is interested in military & guns. By page 46 we had to put the book down, with the constant use of profanities. Really inappropriate for his age, unfortunately, as he would have enjoyed reading this book otherwise. Be warned, it's a rough read. I realize it's military- rough & tough guys doing their job, but the language (at least the few pages I could stomach) was really unnecessary.

Thanks for the info. It's hard to find reviewers who mention language for military books but this is useful to know.

Well if your son is planning to join the military he should know that military people curse alot. Some use it like its the only words in the english language. The use in the book was true to life I never read anything in the book that was to extreme considering it in military terms. Now from a civilian stand point its extreme but in the military its sorta light. Just in basic training your going to have profanity screamed at you for weeks on end every day.
