"Michael Anthony's candid narrative of his service in Iraq is far removed from the glamorized picture of military life that has become a staple of our mass media. Instead, we are confronted with the raw reality of death, deception and dishonor; a world of men and women psychologically strained to the breaking point that is rife with corruption, infidelity and the abuse of power. In one of his crises of conscience, Anthony finds himself wishing that he could "forget everything and go back to thinking that everyone in the military is an American hero". You will share his sense of disillusionment after reading this eye-opening memoir."
