According to history, William Tecumseh Sherman stated "War is hell" during the American Civil War. Years have passed since then with many wars in our world. In the newspapers and on TV we hear about the men and women who fight, and die in these battles. But do we really understand what they experience in foreign lands, away from family and home. Do we know the horrors they witness every day? I've always thought it's sad that people cannot get along with one another, but never considered the gruesome reality of day to day life for our soldiers. Until I read Peggy Tibbetts' novel PFC LIBERTY STRYKER, that is. Boy did the author open my eyes to the truth. I have to agree with Mr. Sherman.

After Libby Stryker's father, who was career army, is killed at the Pentagon on 9/11, Libby joins the army and before long is in the desert of Iraq, seeing a side of war that only one who's been there can believe. Death is everywhere and not just the soldiers but innocent men, women, and children as well. The author describes the scenes in such depth that the reader can almost hear the cries of pain, smell the stench of blood and bodies, and feel the terror in the air. Don't be surprised if you cry a little. I did. I will warn you, also, that the language is raw and rough and not for the squeamish. Libby has a lot to learn about her fellow soldiers, and she soon discovers that sometimes those we trust the most are not what or who we believe them to be. The story is full of unexpected twists that show just how complicated war and people really are.

Author Peggy Tibbetts did her research. Her acknowledgment at the front of the book credits the many people who helped her get the details of PFC LIBERTY STRYKER just right. After reading this book, I think you'll appreciate even more the sacrifices of our brave soldiers, to keep America, you and me, safe.

Peggy Tibbetts is a master of plot and action, and she has given us all this and more in her latest novel "PFC Liberty Stryker". Set in the backdrop of the American invasion of Iraq, army private Libby must harden herself against the troop and civilian carnage she repeatedly encounters in this Middle Eastern land. The attack scenes are graphic and raw, filled with details that bring home the stark consequences of what may have in the end been a senseless war. Kidnapped from her convoy and commanded to accompany a strange military Captain on a secret mission to an unknown location, Libby eventually faces a horrifying truth that involves the 9/11 plane crash into the Pentagon. This story is filled with unexpected twists and turns and the descriptions were so real that I was left constantly with the taste of sand on my lips and the feel of a hot wind in my face. Although I am now much more knowledgeable about military acronyms and what they mean, I have also come away with an uncomfortable feeling that there may some truth in what Peggy Tibbetts has revealed in her fictional novel; a truth that may unfortunately stay hidden from the public forever.

PFC Liberty Stryker by Peggy Tibbetts grabs you right from the start and does not let go. The story opens with Libby Stryker in a military convoy in Iraq. The swearing, lingo-talking Libby fits in with her male counterparts right from the start. It's clear she has a lot to prove and prove it she will. Her past has been rocky, including her father's death at the Pentagon during 911 and sexual assault by superiors once enlisted. You can't help but feel sympathetic for Libby and situation. And you understand her motives for going to war and risking her life. You are ready to go along for the ride with Libby through the dangerous streets of Baghdad.

The thing I appreciated the most about this book is the amount of extensive research that went into its creation. While reading it I kept thinking it seemed like a direct account from someone who'd been on the front lines of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The lingo, acronyms and small details (things like the food they ate or the Iraqi slang they used) seemed to real to me. I love books that transport you to a new world and let you learn something about the world in which we live. This book did just that.

Overall, even though this book is outside the normal genre in which I read, I found myself enjoying it and learning from it. War is compelling and Tibbetts does her all to take us there. It is suitable for mature teens and adults for language, violence and references to rape.

BEC'S REVIEW

Having read Letters to Juniper by Peggy Tibbetts originally, this book came as a change to me- not only in genre but also reader age. As such I wasn't sure what to expect of PFC, especially given how much I enjoyed Juniper, and so was pleasantly surprised to find myself really getting into the story and enjoying the book, especially since reading about soldiers and war does not normally appeal to me in anyway. This book shows how an author can take a topic a reader may not generally be interested in and make it a real page turner.

As with Juniper this story contains a twist which I will not give away, though I will say that it certainly surprised me. I am normally pretty good at guessing twists, but this one had me quite surprised, a fact I greatly enjoyed. This was helped by the superb characters Tibbetts has employed in her story, especially Libby and the Captain. While Libby is the protagonist and thus the most fleshed out character, I really enjoyed the character development of the Captain. As the story went on my opinion of him changed in the same manner that Libby's did.

Overall PFC Liberty Stryker is another hit from Tibbetts. I recommend reading this book and others by this wonderful author, and will hopefully get the opportunity to read many more of her books.
