War by Sebastian Junger.. Perfect Stormer Junger brings long, hard study, first-hand experience and a proven ability to tell complex stories to the mother of all storyforms. Take your Illiad and shove it? Not quite, but here's an apt, unglamorous study of the mess we're in.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"It's a story about war that is much more than a war story.."

Washington Post

"Like Junger’s superb earlier work, The Perfect Storm, the book roams far wider than the immediate subject and is a profound treatise on the experience of young men at war throughout human history.."

The Telegraph
