"One of the most thoughtful and honest accounts ever written by a young Army officer confronting all the tests of life." -Bob Woodward

In this surprise bestseller, West Point grad, Rhodes scholar, Airborne Ranger, and U. S. Army Captain Craig Mullaney recounts his unparalleled education and the hard lessons that only war can teach. While stationed in Afghanistan, a deadly firefight with al-Qaeda leads to the loss of one of his soldiers. Years later, after that excruciating experience, he returns to the United States to teach future officers at the Naval Academy. Written with unflinching honesty, this is an unforgettable portrait of a young soldier grappling with the weight of war while coming to terms with what it means to be a man.

This is an amazing book and a great insights into the harsh realities of war and the effects it has on those who serve and protect our country. I would recommend this book to not only those interested in the military and worldwide conflicts, but for anyone else that is interested in current events happening around the world. I love how the book really gives you an insight into the lives of those who protect and how their lives outside of the military is effected. Great read, everyone should give this book a try!

A very insightful book and allows you to comprehend what goes through the mind of a soldier who for better or worse is trained to think like a scholar
