Description: "An excellent addition to the literature of media, wartime reporting, and the social history of warfare."The Historian "Skibas book demonstrates that embedding reporters in military units works. . . . Among the many books recently published about this war, Skibas is distinctive because of her vibrant writing, compassion for soldiers, and astute perspective. . . . Skiba writes with compassion and empathizes with the soldiers she encounters, but without becoming an uncritical booster for the war."Military Review "For readers interested in understanding how embedding worksits opportunities and limitationsSkibas depiction offers a close-up look. She was able to do what the rank-and-file foot soldier doesnt have time to do: write down what life is like day-to-day in the midst of battle. . . . The most compelling aspect of her book is her vivid, you are theredescription of life with the 159th Aviation Brigade, a helicopter unit within the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army. . . . Skiba is a careful observer; she describes the military with an outsiders eye and a reporters attention to detail. . . . Some of the best bits of Skibas book are snatches of conversation in which young men describe loneliness, fear and frustration, or show off their prowess with weapons."Nieman Reports "One of the best books I've seen on reporting in general and on war reporting in particular."Wisconsin State Journal "With remarkable insight and sensitivity, Skiba chronicles the daily lives of an interesting cross section of soldiers, from the brigade commander to the cooks with whom she bunked at the end of the campaign. . . . This is a great story, told with grit, humor, and humility. Its also a testament to the fact that the media and military need not be adversaries."Roanoke Times "In describing her battles with sandstorms, scorpions, and sexism, Skibas dramatic and often deeply revealing memoir offers straightforward testimony to the professional and personal sides of both the military and media. Simultaneously making fun of her own fears and limitations while praising the valor and dedication of the soldiers, Skibas candid, self-deprecating anecdotes artfully balance this no-holds-barred account of war's grim reality."Booklist
