"Articulate and unsparing...[an] unforgettable account of how modern warfare both broadened and unsettled a young soldier."
-"The New York Times Book Review "

"As the art of warfare has transformed from trenches and Maginot Lines to guerrilla terrorism and nation-building, a new strain of existentialism has emerged: the boredom of war. Patrick Hennessey, a captain in the British Army, captures that ennui perfectly...[he] wields his words as impressively as he does his weapons. "
-"Entertainment Weekly"

"Unlike the chiseled journalists who go to observe and report, Hennessey was in the shit himself. His first (and hopefully not only) book tempers the rigors of war with youthful irreverence."
-"Time Out New York "
