    DescriptionIn January 2007, the young and optimistic soldiers of the 2-16, the American infantry battalion known as the Rangers, were sent to Iraq as part of the surge. Their job would be to patrol one of the most dangerous areas of Baghdad. For fifteen months, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Finkel was with them, following them almost every grueling step of the way. The resulting account of that time, The Good Soldiers, is a searing, shattering portrait of the face of modern war. In telling the story of these soldiers, both the heroes and the ruined, David Finkel has also written a classic work of war reporting.

    Review quote
    'A ferociously reported, darkly humorous and spellbinding book - You will be able to take this book down from the shelf years from now and say: This is what happened. This is what it felt like.' Doug Stanton, New York Times
