I have been scouring the web for any type of reading guide for the Jan/Feb reading selection, “My War ~ Killing Time In Iraq” by Colby Buzzell and have had little luck. I did come across a review by Matthew Hill at the University of Maryland as well as a great article from The New York Times called The Hemmingway Effect which discusses the troops turned writers due to their experiences in war. Colby Buzzell himself is now a columnist for Esquire Magazine . He’s got one article titled “The Best Years of Our Lives” which was an interesting read about life after deployment and the Army and looking at life now.
I enjoyed this book and feel that it gave me a little more insight on the experiences going on in Iraq. I liked reading about the day to day stuff that the troops do and the dangers that their lives entail while carrying out the “War on Terror”. I know that it’s been a while since you finished this book but please reiterate your opinion on this book and what you took from it.
I will be posting the new voting poll this weekend for the March/April title so be sure to check back here soon.
