Generation Kill by Evan Wright

Generation Kill. This is a really interesting read about the first group of Marines to go into Iraq, written by a journalist from Rolling Stone who was embedded with the Marines for the invasion. It was also made into a HBO miniseries.
They were called a generation without heroes. Then they were called upon to be heroes. Within hours of 9/11, America's war on terrorism fell to those like the twenty-three Marines of the First Recon Battalion, the first generation dispatched into open-ended combat since Vietnam.

This absorbing account by a young man who, as a boy of 12, gets swept up in Sierra Leone's civil war goes beyond even the best journalistic efforts in revealing the life and mind of a child abducted into the horrors of warfare. Beah's harrowing journey transforms him overnight from a child enthralled by American hip-hop music and dance to an internal refugee bereft of family, wandering from village to village in a country grown deeply divided by the indiscriminate atrocities of unruly, sociop...
A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah
Worth Reading, Civil Wars, Child Soldiers, Awesome Book, Eye Open, Sierra Leone, Summer Reading, Boys Soldiers, Ishmael Beah
one of the best books ever. Beah recounts his life as a child soldier in Sierra Leon during the civil war. Truly mind blowing and will or it at least should make you at least ask where your diamonds are come from.
summer reading for the memoir unit...
Heart wrenching and eye opening.
maybe worth reading...
A Long Way Gone" is quite a depressing story but very inspiring. Ishmael Beah tells the story of becoming a boy soldier in Sierra Leone and of his later rehabilitation. This was a heartbreaking story and very difficult to read from an emotional standpoint. I read the book over a short period of time as it is so gripping that I did not want to put it down, but at the same time it brought an overwhelming sense of sorrow. The horror that Beah so well describes, was unbelievably moving.
