The Good Soldiers

The Good Soldiers by David Finkel
Publisher: Atlantic Books, 2010

‘A dozen vehicles were on fire. Burning fuel was everywhere. There had been no siren, no warning at all, just a sudden explosion that felt like the end of the world had arrived...’

For fifteen months, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Finkel toured with the soldiers of the 2-16 battalion. During 2007,they were deployed to enforce the most dangerous areas of Baghdad. The Good Soldiers is the searing account of that time; a shattering portrait of the heroes and the ruined, and a classic chronicle of modern warfare.
