Generation Kill is on the young men sent to fight their first nation opened the war from VietnamDespite the whirlwind of media footage from the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, you have never really met one of these people, who are in the front line.For whatever reason, the media simply did not getAs we all know, the news of the last two wars have been almost exclusively on the battlefield of high-tech imagery, weapons made surprisingly destructive, complying with the analysis of the army’s retreat of high dignitaries and other experts, punctuated by oddly hot in the patriotic heart of sound to a bite.The troops themselves play a role in the media presentation of recent wars rather as extras in The Triumph of Will.They are everywhere and yet invisibleWhen they talk, you have the feeling that what they say has been carefully written.Now, the Generation of Killers tells the soldiers of history in their own wordsThe story focuses on a platoon of 23 marines, including many former combatants from Afghanistan, including the elite of the reconnaissance unit spearheading the offensive against Iraq.It’s the story of young men who were trained to become merciless killers.It’s about surviving death.It’s about taking part in a war that is much called into question before it has even begun.Evan Wright was the only journalist at the First Recon, who operated well before most other forces, usually behind enemy lines.They were among the first Marines sent to fight and one of the last units still engaged on the outskirts of Iraq, even after the city center fell down.The generation of Killers is not only a chronic fight but an inner view of how people experience the fighting in war.It is both a narrative action like Black Hawk Down and a detailed portrait of a generation at war along the lines of Band of Brothers.There’s not a book you’re gonna forget about in a hurry.
