I think that it is an exceptional account of what people in war go through and all of the effects it has on them. The story really exposes someone to what these men and women really go through day to day when they are fighting for our country.

I also really liked Chris’s honesty in the story. He didn’t hold anything back in order for the reader to get the most realistic view of war.
