Price: $6.99
Take away the heroics and patriotism that are the main topics of books on war and you are left with the raw emotional conflicts that every soldier experiences. The aim of this book is to pull the reader into the mindset of an American soldier in the Iraq conflict through photographs and poetry, and hopefully leave one with a better understanding of the bulletholes which war leaves on the human condition. "The poems represent feelings of desperation and anger, hope and camaraderie. The photos document the life of a common reservist. They are not images of the graphic gore or violence that wins Pulitzers, but of an innocent fascination with an alien world, the curiosity of an ancient people misunderstood and in limbo, and of an infrastructure destroyed by American artillery. It is the experience of war told impressionistically from one who lived, saw, and heard it first hand." -Vincent D. Pisano, from the Forward

    "Nationalism you can suck my......" As mentioned in the title (a favorite quote of mine from the Violent Femmes) this book is anything but nationalistic. The poetry written here is not of the flowery variety, nor is it the patriotic rhetoric that is spewed by military recruitment commercials airing all over television. This is a look, a real and genuine look, at what it feels like to be a soldier. From the eyes and ears of a man stuck in an unfamiliar terrain, surrounded by strangers from other lands. The photographs and poems compliment one another and really give the reader a sense of what it feels like to be in a foreign land, hoping that soon they will return home unscathed. A powerful work of brutal honesty. Highly recommended! Nathan L. Andrews -author of The Boon of Orsidire
