The Yellow Birds,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Yellow Birds: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
It is immediately apparent that Mr Powers hails from the rich writing heritage of the South. The book is almost a poem about the soul destroying power of war. His journey into Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the price he paid to survive it should be required reading by every person who felt this conflict was necessary for America to join. Magnificent book. Should be required reading in every high school.
