Jarhead, by Anthony Swofford
"I don't this this book is all that good because it only talks about one person's point of view. There is way too much unneeded nonsense. But it speaks the truth in many statements." Reviewed by Nick, a Hemphill Branch reader.
Anthony Swofford recounts the time he served in the 1991 Gulf War as a Marine sniper. Dissappointed over how he was received when he returned home, Swofford became depressed and angry. Like in many tales told after a big event, some elements of this account may stray from the facts, but still it still makes a good read.
