Just a note that Matthew Currier "Blackfive" Burden has finally gotten around to announcing that his book is out.
"Can you handle the truth?...The Blog of War (Simon & Schuster) is loaded with firsthand reports from the Internet diaries of soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Grab it before the Pentagon orders it burned..." - Vanity Fair, September 2006
Go read Matt's post about it here, then make an old Dog happy by using that button on the left (or the one on the sidebar) to order your copy. I haven't had a chance yet to do more than flip through my copy but that was enough I can affirm that it's just as great as I expected it to be.
One of my favorite books is Andrew Carroll’s “War Letters: Extraordinary Correspondence from American Wars”, and it has now been joined by another, more recent title, MAJ (Ret.) Matthew C Burden’s “The Blog of War”. ... I just got done reading the complimentary copy that he was kind enough to send me, and it is no exaggeration to say that it’s compelling reading. I ate it all up, from cover to cover, and my only regret is that it isn’t five times as long as its 304 pages. ...
