4.0 out of 5 stars Well-Told Stories, January 7, 2014
This review is from: Redeployment (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Loved the voice of these stories. It was just perfect for the content, matched it so well. They were not overly descriptive, but if they had been something would have been lost. Not something one says in a review often. The narrators were spot on, instead, telling the reader just enough in a language that was so real you often felt the story teller was talking directly to you. Having read a lot of military lit, being the daughter of a vet, I liked the balance met in these stories too. There was enough shocking info to make the reader stop and think, yet not enough to send them into emotional turmoil like some war stories do. I think more of the point gets across that way, maybe even more is allowed to be realized. I've always felt guilt when reading war stories to have the luxury of putting the book down when it becomes too much, a luxury the vet never had when the experience was happening to them. But I never had to put this book down, yet I learned so much about when the soldiers experienced. We can never know it all, again our civilian luxury, but for those who want to know more, this is a great place to start whatever amount is fiction or fictionalized non-fiction.

WOW!

Your excellent comment about whether of not this book is "fiction or non-fictionalized":
YOU have convinced ME to purchase this; what must be a GREAT book. Plus, I am NOT a fiction reader. This no doubt compares to Jeff Sharra as someone else commented.

GOD BLESS you for your convincing me on this BOOK; had already read MOST of the other reviews before I came to your GREAT review!~!

GOD BLESS ALL of 0ur GREAT MILITARY!

JIM of MAINE..a proud AMERICAN and USAF brat!
