Nightcap at Dawn : American Soldiers' Counterinsurgency in Iraq Paperback
by J. B. Walker
A group of US soldiers emailed their observations and experiences from Iraq and their candid opinions on fighting an insurgency.
This book is the result. This startling collection of emails from American soldiers that Christopher Hitchens called "a truly extraordinary book ...the most authentic account yet produced of the Iraq battle" is a thoughtful and compelling narrative that carries the reader from the alleys and city streets to the homes of long-suffering Iraqis, and from the soldiers' concrete bunkers to the "majestic" army base.
Along the way the reader is asked to consider the puzzles posed for a disciplined army engaged with an enemy that hides amid-and indeed, targets - a civilian population.
