This book is powerful, emotional and entertaining. The stories are raw and true to life because of the approach taken by Holmes. The contributing authors wrote their stories from the heart and the lack of intervention by the editor adds to the often gritty substance.
Just bought it last night, ….I still can hardly put it down. Already I’ve laughed and cringed
simultaneously, cried for my fallen brothers in arms, forced myself to keep reading even though my husband’s over there now, and prayed for a crapton of people I’ll never meet. The editing is pretty rough in some stories, but it makes them more authentic and I obviously care so much that I can’t put it down and wish I could buy Kindle copies for a dozen friends.
I am astounded by this book, I’m buying a paper edition as soon as possible to lend out to family and friends who ask about the war. I’ve laughed, cried and had my heart broken in the first 3 stories. To all those veterans who need something to relate to, THIS IS IT! To all those civilians that need an eye opener, THIS IS IT! To the rest of the world who want to know what us 1% have been through THIS-IS-IT! Straight from the front lines, straight from the soldiers memories, straight from the souls who’ve been forever changed.
