    Fire and Forget eBook ´ Fire and ePUB Þ fire ebok, forget kindle, Fire and kindle, Fire and Forget eBookI originally picked up this book because I am interested in war literature and because I hoped that through my reading I would gain some insight into a conflict that despite how much I read or hear about it I am still trying to understand In his review EL Doctorow says the book is necessary to read I agree and think that every American should read this amazing and diverse collection of stories by this amazing and diverse group of extremely talented writers all of whom served in some capacity in Ira andor Afghanistan When I finished book however two things became clear to me First the book challenges readers to examine their own perceptions and attitudes about the The Long War about the service provided by our troops and about the personal aftermath of that service The bo

    Fire and Forget eBook ´ Fire and ePUB Þ fire ebok, forget kindle, Fire and kindle, Fire and Forget eBookThis is a book of short stories by writers who are all veterans of the military mostly serving in Ira but also Afghanistan I picked it up originally thinking it was of a narrative of real life but they're actually fictional stories It was really interesting to read the different stories that people cam cup with There's a wide variety of perspectives at play in the book and you get a sense for many different aspects of military life during wartime both during deployment and adjusting back to home Having no experience myself I found it a little hard to relate at times but I think that's the point There's so many of us out there that just have no understanding of what it's like and people close to service members may not even have a clue because it's just such a life changing experience I found it hard to tell which p
