“Redeployment” by Phil Klay

“Redeployment” written by Iraq War Veteran and former Marine, Phil Klay was excellent! This book is a book of short stories from the frontlines in the Iraq War that deal with issues of PTSD, themes of faith and God and the ramifications of one’s actions. It speaks to blindly following orders even if you know that there could be life-altering consequences for those impacted by them. Other ideas that are persistent in any war-torn area about survival and helplessness were intertwined with each story as well.

This collection resembles books written in the same vein such as “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien or “Catch-22” by Joseph Heller. I really enjoyed this insightful collection. It gave me a new appreciation for Marines and other military servicemen and women, and the various challenges they face on and off the battlefield.

I definitely recommend this collection!
