Excellent book. One of the best satires of 2012!

Just like MASH, Catch 22, and so forth this is a darkly humourous and satirical look at those who work on the Forward Operating Base in the heavily fortified Green Zone in Baghdad. Abrams blends fact and fiction, in showing us what it was like to be Army Political Information officer. Watch out for references to The Hobbit.
