Junger gives insight into the truths of war--the fear, the honor, and the trust among men. His on-the-ground account follows a single platoon through a 15-month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley. Through the experiences of these young men at war, he shows what it means to fight, to serve, and to face down mortal danger on a regular basis.

This could also be called 'The Face Of Battle: 21st Century'. Its an intense story that vividly describes the work of soldiers, and the author also includes the psychological, sociological, and institutional aspects of warfare.

If you get this, check out the bonus pics and writing on the last CD. Also, if you can, get the documentary "Restropo" which was filmed while he was writing this book. War....a necessary evil? One thing I get from this, is that if we commit to war, we'd better commit wholeheartedly, otherwise, we are just wasting good young lives.

Sebastian Junger's account of accompanying a single platoon through their tour of duty in Afghanistan. The basis for the movie "Restrepo." Salvatore Giunta, the first living person to receive the Medal of Honor since Vietnam, is a member of the platoon Junger stayed with--and the rescue that earned him the medal is included in the book.
