Generation Kill: Devil Dogs, Iceman, Captain America, and the New Face of American War by Evan WrightGeneration Kill by Evan Wright is a firsthand account of a reporter embedded with the Marines of Force Recon Battalion during the invasion of Iraq. Jam-packed with details,this novel portrays the struggles and terrors that the marines face in the war.From weapons malfunctioning to choices that the higher ranking officers have caused,Evan Wright explains everything that happened during his two months with the marines.
Throughout the story, the marines encounter problems with their enemies.Sometimes the enemy dress up as civilians so that the marines cannot tell whether the person is a civilian or military personal.This interferes with the ROE(Rules Of Engagement) because the Rules of Engagement state that they can only shoot at enemies in uniform.Another rule they cant break is that they can only fire if fired at.This boils down to the marines not being able as aggressive as they are trained to be.
I thought this book was exciting and at the same time educating, because I learned what a war in modern times is like.It tells you the strategy of the US military and the reason why our marines are always the first in and last out.I couldnt stop reading because the tension carried through to the next page and there was always action on every page.When I finished the book I decided to read it again because I liked it so much.
In conclusion, Generation Kill is a narrative from a reporter who was alongside the marines of First Recon Battalion that explains why our marines are elite.He supplies the readers with the day-to-day issues experienced on the battlefields of the Middle East.This is the most honest and accurate view on the Iraq War that exists.
