Editorial Reviews

Review

“I’ve known a few men over forty who have enlisted in the Army. They bring a perspective and maturity to the business of combat arms not found among the twentysomethings. Mike MacLeod brings all this, along with the insights of a photojournalist and an experienced writer. The Brave Ones is a unique, inside look at modern war. Nicely done, Mike.” —Dick Couch, author of The Warrior Elite and Chosen Soldier
