Great listen or read! The narrator Ray Porter makes the book come alive. Can be confusing at times to know exactly where/when they are but it's definitely worth the listen. An easy read and educational on the situation in the middle east. By the time you finish, you'll be wondering what the heck it is we're (the USA) doing over there. Worth your time if interested in modern war books. Not too overbearing w/ political views either, stays in the middle ground.
