What are you searching for when you read a military memoir? Is it entertainment? Nostalgia? To better understand your own experience in combat? All of the above? Which war memoir gave you what you were looking for?
If I Die In A Combat Zone by Tim O’Brien is my choice. Short and poignant. Honest storytelling. I read memoirs to gain insight into my personal experience with war and its effects on the mind and soul. Above all, I love recognizing myself in someone else's words. Two words: Shared Experience.
