Book Review: Youngblood
When Lieutenant Matt Gallagher began his blog with the aim of keeping his family and friends apprised of his experiences, he didn't anticipate that it would resonate far beyond his intended audience. His subjects ranged from mission details to immortality, grim stories about Bon Jovi cassettes mistaken for IEDs, and the daily experiences of the Gravediggers-the code name for members of Gallagher's platoon.
When the blog was shut down in June by the U. Army, there were more than twentyfive congressional inquiries regarding the matter as well as reports through the military grapevine that many high-ranking officials and officers at the Pentagon were disappointed that the blog had been ordered closed.
Like Anthony Swofford's Jarhead , Gallagher's Kaboom resonates with stoic detachment and timeless insight into a war that we are still trying to understand. Matt Gallagher. The Good Soldiers.

Day after day, Jack tries to assert his leadership in the sweltering, dreary atmosphere of Ashuriyah.
But his world is disrupted by the arrival of veteran Sergeant Daniel Chambers, whose aggressive style threatens to undermine the fragile peace that the troops have worked hard to establish. Gallagher has a keen reportorial eye, a distinctive voice and an instinctive sympathy for the people he is writing about, and he uses those gifts here to immerse us in his characters's lives With Youngblood, he has written an urgent and deeply moving novel.
Highly recommended. Gallagher follows up on his successful first book, the memoir Kaboom: Embracing the Suck in a Savage Little War , with a smart Iraq War novel that adds something new to the genre—new genres. Gallagher subtly weaves throughout this excellent, brutal tale intrigue, a mystery, and two compelling love stories… A fresh twist on the Iraq War novel adds depth to this burgeoning genre.
