I couldn t put this book down Weisskopf a journalist for Time Magazine has fast paced sound bite style that kept my attention for the entire book While covering a story in Ira Weisskopf lost his hand in a grenade explosion His narrative covers his and his acuaintances recoveries in Walter Reed s Ward 57 As the first civilian to be treated at Walter Reed Weisskopf walks a thin line between friend and reporter while probing into the details of the events that led to his peers amputations This book is a great read no matter what your political leaning or your stance on the warFrom my perspective as a young educated anti war liberal it can sometimes feel impossible to identify with or understand the motivations and feelings of someone that enlists in the military I think this book does a very good job of revealing the personalities of a few US soldiers and making it easier to sympathize with them It showed me that heroism is real and it can be found in the actions of a soldier who fought in a war that I think wasn t worth waging
