Item description for The Babylon Blog: One Man's Journey to the War and Back by Glen Morris...
What's it like for a former elementary school principal and seminary student to suddenly end up on the mean streets of Haditha? Volunteering for reserve duty in Iraq, Glen Morris assured his wife that, as a colonel, he would be safe behind the walls of a large base and concerned only about the number of emails in his in-box. But soon he found himself 'outside the wire' and getting a firsthand look at the insurgency in volatile al Anbar province. The Babylon Blog is the published form of the internet journal he wrote for his friends and family. Whether patrolling through back alleys with the 'Grunts, ' wandering the halls of Saddam's palace, or commenting on the chow at Camp Fallujah, he offers an intimate, thoughtful and often humorous look at what it's like for an 'Average Joe' to go off to war. Read The Babylon Blog and get a glimpse of life in Iraq for those who serve there

A Great Quick Read Jan 30, 2008
This book gives the reader a different, very human and ground level perspective on the War in Iraq. Glen Morris is at times funny and light yet a bit philosophical here and there. I really enjoyed this book.
