Ms. Argo's written style is engaging - it draws you in enough to create a solid picture of the situations she is facing, and of the harsh realities of a war-torn country that has been ignored by the only people who could possibly help end this. It's an eye-opener to anyone who relies on major news networks for the revelation of what's happening, but it's also a deeper look into the people that are affected. Ms. Argo's story, and her journey, take the reader beyond the 'us vs them' mentality that often leaves one side of a war dehumanized, and finds the humanity in the people that are on either side of this war.
A recommended read for all - whether you're someone who prefers to be kept up to date on the situations of a war the media tends to leave behind, or someone who has not followed this situation at all. Ms. Argo's book is one of the best I have read in a while, and I hope to see more from her as she continues her journey covering the Ukraine situation and travelling.
Highly recommended for the time she took getting know the men (and women) fighting the war on both sides. A must read for soldiers everywhere who are interested in "small wars", and a should read for the people who only get their information from mainstream media outlets.
One issue that I do have is that some of Ms. Argo's excellent photography should have been included in the book. It was not in the E-version, unsure if it is in the hardcopy.
