If you saw Black Hawk Down and The Hurt Locker you might have gotten an idea of modern warfare - what the Soldiers are going through on a daily basis. Although Hollywood made, these films do not glorify …

Why Do You Kill? (by Jurgen Todenhofer) is a highly recommended look inside the Iraqi resistance.

This book looks inside the Iraqi resistance and shows how it is not only fighting the American occupiers, but also Al-Qaeda terrorists and the various private militias. A person can argue about the conduct …

Senator's Son: An Iraq War Novel
When we first heard about COIN (Counter-Insurgency) most of us probably thought it made a hell of a lot of sense. Why hadn't anybody thought of it before?    The problem with most …
Rage Company: A Marine's Baptism By Fire
Iraq is a screwed up place. I have read a few books about the war there and each tells a different story depending on what area of Iraq the Author is talking about. This book tells of the daily grind …

Failures of the Presidents: From the Whiskey
Our Presidents are but human, made up of the same mix of the devine and the horrid as the rest of us, only set to eleven. Their successes are far out of proportion to that of anyone else, and their failures …

When I read books like this one about America's descent into empire, the threshold question for me is always, to what extent does the author blame George W. Bush (or related bugaboos like Cheney, Rumsfeld, …
