    There were two huge aspects I loved about this book.

    First, as a man outside the military, I was shown what it was like to become a soldier and the bonds required to become a Ranger.

    Second, the honesty of what the author went through after combat and what kept him stable was extremely humbling.

    This was such a good read on its own but will be even more valuable if you know anyone currently or formerly in the military.

    "Two Wars" is a military autobiography which impressed me with the astounding story and by the vivid writing. Nate Self describes the sights, sounds, smells, and feelings of what it's like to be in modern front-line combat.The story is fast-paced and interesting throughout. Once the Afghanistan battle began, the story was heart-pounding in intensity, and I read late into the night to finish the book. I had no trouble following the story or visualizing what was happening. The author describes the equipment, terrain, positions, and acronyms in the text. If you ever get confused (which I never did), some maps, pictures, and a glossary are included.The author is a Christian, but the focus of the book is not on his Christianity but on what he experienced. Most of the book has little mention of God, but the author does describe a few spiritual high-points and very low points. There was some cussing in the book, but it's written as "F--- that!" rather than spelled out. The potentially gory parts were not explicit and were usually glossed over. I'd recommend this excellent book to anyone who likes to read war stories, to anyone who wants to know what modern warfare is like, or to anyone who wants to understand why their family member has changed since coming back from a deployment.Different Time, Different Placehttp://differenttimedifferentplace.blogspot.com/

    A great and heart tugging story. Great to read a book by my West Point classmate. We purchased the Book-on-CD as well and is great listening in the car.
