The Devils Of Eden by Joseph Holsworth
Hemingway warned, "Never think war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime." The Devils of Eden echoes those words throughout its introspective look at the modern battle field. You won't find the common glorifications that decorate most war stories. Holsworth gutwrenchingly exposes the actions and psyches of the 21st century soldier as he follows a group of reconnaissance paratroopers during a tragic deployment at a remote firebase in the Paktia Province of Eastern Afghanistan. This novel is unrivaled in its time and will serve as an honest depiction of America's War on Terror for generations to come.
