    1. As an American from the United States born after WWII and the Korean War all I've ever heard or read about Canada's military is that it was basically the little brother to our military. That they were a pacifist nation or peace keeping nation. This book about Operation Medusa in Afghanistan 2006 proves that when called upon to have our backs as brothers they can do so with as much force as other nations. They proved their fighting prowess in a manner that is typical of their southern bigger mili [...]

    2. A good read for those who wish to understand Canada's entrance and roles in Afghanistan. I read this book after Fifteen Days (Christie Blatchford) and The Taliban Don't Wave(Rob Semrau) and I preferred this book to the other two due to the political introduction and the very broad use of references that collect the different points of view on the battlefield of multiple contacts CAF soldiers faced.

    3. A disappointing and sometimes frustrating read. The book contains a number of typographical and grammatical errors, as well as a few inexplicably repeated passages.

If I had not been present in Kandahar during the events described, I don't think this book would have held my interest.
