Chasing Ghosts, Paul Rieckhoff's book about the Iraq war, is now out in paperback from NAL Caliber. We're pleased to recommend it.
The book, which we read some months ago, is a compelling and deeply human tale about Rieckhoff and his unit's experiences patrolling Baghdad. It's an eye-opening story filled with the insecurities and frustrations of combat.
We came away from Rieckhoff's book deeply moved by the sacrifice of our soldiers and seriously concerned about their mission and their level of support.
It's not a happy tale, but all Americans concerned about the disastrous path of the Bush administration in Iraq should read it.
