Hugh Martin's Stick Soldiers

I just read an amazing book by fellow Iraq poet Hugh Martin and figured I'd let everyone know that it absolutely blew my mind.  And since "sharing is caring" I wanted to post my little mini-review here:

This book floored me.  It absolutely took me back to my Iraq deployment--the sights, the smells, the sounds, the absurdity and, at times, beauty of it all--in breathtakingly described detail.  This book is so polished and exquisite it's hard to believe it's a debut from this author.  This is a "must have" for any 21st century war collection.  It easily rivals Brian Turner's "Here, Bullet."  Read this book.  You won't be disappointed.
