A memoir of the Gulf War by a front-line infantry marine recounts his struggles with the conflict on the front lines, his battles with fear and suicide, his brushes with death, and his identity as a soldier and an American. *Author: Swofford, Anthony *Subtitle: A Marines Chronicle of the Gulf War And Other Battles *Publication Date: 2005/10/18 *Number of Pages: 260 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 5.75 *Height: 8.50
In this candid war memoir, Anthony Swofford chronicles his experiences as a sniper during the first Gulf War, in 1991. A third-generation soldier, Swofford served in a United States Marine Corps Surveillance and Target Acquisition Platoon, and here he holds nothing back as he conveys the raw feelings of fear and boredom that he experienced, as well as the shared feelings of intimacy and camaraderie of soldiers waiting to ship out, waiting for a fire fight, waiting to die. In his down time, Swofford reflects on his upbringing in a military family, and his experiences in boot camp. This grunt's eye view of combat was a New York Times Notable Book for 2003. It was also made into a 2005 movie, directed by Sam Mendes and starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
