Fifteen days stories of bravery, friendship, life and death from inside the new Canadian Army
Blatchford has covered the conflict in Afghanistan as an embedded reporter, and provides observations of military life in the twenty-first century. The troops share their accounts of their desire to serve, their willingness to confront fear and danger on the battlefield, their loyalty towards each other and the heartbreak occasioned by the loss of one of their own. Descriptions of sex, explicit descriptions of violence and some strong language. Winner of the 2008 Governor General's Award for Non-fiction. 2007.
