War - Sebastian Junger

A deceptively straightforward account of a platoon’s fifteen-month deployment in a remote outpost in the Korangal Valley of Eastern Afghanistan, War (Twelve, $15.99), by Sebastian Junger, is a brave attempt at documenting the lives of men in constant danger, the incongruities of combat, the boredom and the fear, and the fine line between the living and the dead.  The stories of what happens to these men are interspersed with explanations of the science behind fear, courage, and the bonds that develop among men who trust each other with their lives.
