Title:  Big Boy Rules: America's Mercenaries fighting In Iraq

Author:  Steve Fainaru

Publisher:  Da Capo Press

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. AAA Founder

Hard Hitting Story of Present Day Mercenaries

Author Steve Fainaru's detailed and emotional story about contract mercenaries fighting in Iraq is not only timely, but also presents a side of that war that needs to be shown. In his book, "Big Boy Rules: America's Mercenaries fighting In Iraq," we get a sometimes ugly realization that this war is being waged in an unprecedented way. It certainly makes one stop and rethink the direction this country has taken with how this war and future wars will be fought.

Fainaru lets the reader actually know these men. They are not some faceless warrior. That is what makes this book stand out. He interviews them and finds out what makes them who they are and why some of them are there. It is by letting us see the very human side of this story that makes all that happens ever so more emotional and tragic.

The book is not some dry impersonal tale of a war. The author takes us on a personal journey with some of those men fighting and dying there. The book will make you think. It will make you angry. It will might even move some readers to tears. What it won't ever do is bore you! The book is entertaining and action filled. It is well written and is sure to win this author much praise for his literary skills. This book is brilliantly crafted. The book is worthy of The American Authors Association's top book rating of FIVE STARS! It is really that good! You do not need to be a reader of military genre to get value from this book - the message is there for everyone. I personally recommend it.
