I tend to stay away from military books and those that deal with PTSD.Only due to my own past. I thought I would find inaccuracies, but I was glad and happy that the author really did her research. She got everything down pack. From the military aspect to the PTSD problems. It was as though I was reading about several friends and their lives. Now I am going to go find the rest of the books and read them. Again, I really was not prepared for how accurate this book was.
