Colby Buzzell traded a dead-end future for the army - and ended up as a machine gunner in Iraq. To make sense of the absurd and frightening events surrounding him, he started writing a blog about the war - and how it differed from the government's official version. But as his blog's popularity grew, Buzzell became the embedded reporter the army couldn't control - despite its often hilarious efforts to do so. The result is an extraordinary narrative, rich with unforgettable scenes: the Iraqi woman crying uncontrollably during a raid on her home; the soldier too afraid to fight; the troops chain-smoking in a guard tower and counting tracer rounds; the first fierce firefight against the "men in black." Drawing comparisons to everything from Charles Bukowski to Catch-22's Yossarian, My War depicts a generation caught in a complicated and dangerous world - and marks the debut of a raw, remarkable new voice.
