The Funny Side of War for the Sick and Demented, Mat Vance.
An unvarnished account of the experiences of a US Army Scout who
served during the war in Iraq, but focusing on the more light-hearted
(for a certain definition of light-hearted) aspects of his service
career. The stories ring true, although it is unusual to find an author
willing to put himself at the centre of quite so many escapades.
Provides a different point of view of life in the modern US military,
and thus a valuable work.
