Over the course of five trips, Junger was in more firefights than he could count, as men he knew were killed or wounded and he himself was almost killed. Junger gives us insight into the truths of combat: the fear, the honour, and the trust among men. He describes the endless, body-numbing anticipation of battle; the unquestioned and automatic risks soldiers take; and the adrenaline-fuelled confusion of being ambushed."@en ;
