I thought it was a good book. But it is a story about, of all things, the outpost. It's not someone;s recollections of their tour or a biography or anything like that. It explains the history of the outpost, the main battle and the actions of the soldiers. This is the type of military books that I enjoy reading.

I was unable to sink my teeth into this book but it has received so many solid reviews I would like to revisit it someday. I was such a huge fan of The Good Soldiers, Jarhead and The Last Journey and I was expecting the same experience with The Outpost. Outpost read more like a Congressional Report and I found myself stumbling along unable to find the heartstrings that tugged so strongly at me in The Good Soldiers.
