I just finished a fantastic memoire about the British Occupation of Iraq circa 2003-2006. Most of the book was about the political dynamics in Southern Iraq. But there were also a few stories about combat that I thought were interesting, as told from the perspective of a veteran but without the bullshit you find in a lot of the genre. It reminded me a little of the documentary Restrepo.
I’m interested in other first-person accounts of combat at the squad or at most company level in Iraq and Afghanistan. I know there’s a ton of it out there, but I don’t really know which of it is dreck and which of it is worth reading. What’s good?
