By Karl Zinsmeister. This account of one reporter's month with the 82nd Airborne Division is both a conservative polemic and a vivid portrait of American infantry in action. Working as an embedded correspondent for The National Review, Zinsmeister makes no apologies for his enthusiastic support for the war. Perhaps the most poignant section of the book is the moving account of an Iraqi doctor working with American soldiers to try and save a wounded boy while afraid to give his name for fear of reprisals. This book also includes a humorous story of trading gear in Kuwait's "Body Armor Bazaar", unique insight into how many of the non-combat operations are actually performed by private civilian contractors and outstanding color photographs. Finally, Zinsmeister pulls not punches as he attacks the anti-war movement and his fellow journalists whom he calls "left-wing, cynical, wiseguy Ivy League types."
