    The Yellow Birds ePUB Ñ The Yellow Kindle - yellow free, birds download, The Yellow epub, The Yellow Birds PDF/EPUBAs a chaplain in a VA hospital I don't meet many former warriors who consider themselves heroes nor many who think that war is necessary There is nothing romantic or beautiful about it Some will speak broadly of their experience but only a few will talk about its horror And so I turn to literature to help me understand I think of The Iliad 1 and 2 Samuel War and Peace All Quiet on the Western Front Blood Meridian Catch 22 Slaughterhouse Five and The Naked and the Dead I add to the list Kevin Powers' The Yellow Birds I also bring to the hospital memories of growing up in the war zone of 1950's America in the house of a former Marine who devoutly loved his wife and children and rarely spoke of what he had seen or done The Yellow Birds describes the conflicted duties of a combat soldier He is loyal to a disciplined brutish sergeant and a care taker for a combat buddy but he

    The Yellow Birds ePUB Ñ The Yellow Kindle - yellow free, birds download, The Yellow epub, The Yellow Birds PDF/EPUBThe Yellow Birds is a fictionalised account of a young American soldier’s experiences while on a tour of duty in Iraq in 2004 That this book has been published and is getting a wide readership is important because any and every account in whatever medium which underlines the absurdity of war is needed urgently until the sending out of young men to fight senseless wars becomes a thing of the past  Powers was 17 when he joined the army and what I'd really like to have read is his diary from that time or some other such personal account of his tour of duty Soldiers managed to blog from Iraq in the early years and that first hand reporting was amazing It wasn't trying to be literature it was just about tell
