Praise For…


Hubert Selby, Jr.
author of Last Exit to Brooklyn and Requiem for a Dream

Beautifully crafted, structured, and simple...It is a pleasure to read the work of a real writer. Thank you Mr. Bauman.


Richard Wertime
author of Citadel on the Mountain

A remarkable debut...a tense, razor-edged, powerful effort...This is a book that will hold you.


Don De Grazia
author of American Skin

An important book -- a profound meditation on the stark realities of the American male experience. The truths of soldiering are brilliantly examined here from angles previously unexplored, but this is not so much a war novel as it is an exploration of the human heart. The writing is beautiful and deft, and displays an almost religious devotion to unwavering honesty.


Scott Anderson
author of Triage and The Man Who Tried to Save the World

Bauman renders the true spirit of men at war -- not just the frustrations and fear that come with operating over a dangerous landscape but also the deep bonds that tie men and women together through such experiences. With both humor and compassion, he captures well the deeper wounds that such places can inflict.
