Honor in Dishonor Jul 2, 2004
This book paints a real-life picture of Northern Iraq and the destruction Saddam Hussein committed against it. The reader feels what it was like to be an infantry Marine put into a strange and hostile environment and isolated from friends and family in the States.
The author also delves into the internal workings of an infantry unit; a topic seldom mentioned by many authors because they were either not there or too high up on the chain of command to understand what the basic grunt thinks and feels.
This book has an aluring plot and one never knows what will happen next. Deception, pure evil and ruthless ambition all play a part. Also, the characters all have their faith challenged in God. Some accept his guidance, others reject it. Nothing is sugar-coated.
This book has many parallels with the war in Iraq today and the author included some aspects of the recent war in his epilogue. I highly recommend this book. It's educational, entertaining and thought-provoking.
