    by David Bellavia, a true life account of the second Battle of Fallujah.

    I've read a lot of works about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, but this is by far the most visceral. Not just a description of the carnage of war, but of the emotional toll and compromise that soldiers make to survive, with vivid descriptions of a moral gray zone that combat veterans are hesitant to share.

    I'm living in America, and in America you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business.
