These are like your Grandpa's old war stories...except they aren't that old and there are pictures. If you have not yet done so, I recommend you take a read of his most popular war story Gates of Fire. This war story is action packed and shows the human condition of our troops in a way that most war movies fail to do. Combat journalism is the rawest form of reporting. Mike Yon is on the front lines, with our soldiers, telling their story. It's light reading and should take no more than 45 minutes to an hour to read the whole thing. Enjoy!
