Meantime: The Aesthetics of Soldiering
on Jan. 30, 2012
This book is an excellent read. Stephen Register's ability to capture both beauty and tragedy mixed with the military frustrations that accompany life on a deployment captured me while I was reading. Every person who longs to understand what really goes on in the minds of our soldiers as they serve over seas should read this book. Soldiers will also enjoy "Meantime" because of the grainy realism he portrays mixed with the full range of emotion many of us have felt on a long seemingly meaningless deployment. Do not pass this book up, you will be hard pressed to find a better one in the "meantime."
