Reviews

"If Generation Kill had been written by Sterling Archer. I acknowledge that this work is in many ways a refraction of our own deployments. This is easily the only book on modern warfare in existence that is completely raw and open about the types of twisted thoughts that go through the minds of those asked to do the insane, under asinine conditions, while trying to keep from going completely mad. Those looking for a book on self-righteous heroism, or "patriotic" garble that will somehow justify what we had to do, look elsewhere. Rather, this is an expose on all of the gritty, raw, inappropriate, and downright raunchy thoughts that went through our minds constantly, yet we're too embarrassed to admit." "This is the real deal, and O'Malley is the platoon leader every grunt wants to have. He's the natural leader the brass hates, but the first one they look to when the sh*t hits the fan. As funny as it is, the ugly truth of suicide among combat vets comes through in a very sobering way. Thanks, "Lt. Dan", for holding the flank." - Enlisted Marine "This book is hands down one the best I have ever read regarding life in the Marine Corps, Combat, and Afghanistan. I laughed so hard it hurt on many occasions, and above all, this book is going to save lives. 22 US veterans a day kill themselves due to PTSD related issues. The author issues several calls to action for the reader, and the country, to work against this... There is NO doubt in my mind this book will save lives. If you are a veteran, know a veteran, are interested in war, combat, the Marine Corps, the military, or especially are a guy with combat experience, this book will change your life. Huge thanks to the Author for this work" - Enlisted Marine "On a serious note, I'm a USMC vet and have had some mental health issues not related to combat and on the day I read this book, I was on a bit of a downward swing. After reading it though, my mood was immediately lifted which I think was the intent of Donny's book." - Enlisted Marine "Mr. O'Malley does a fantastic job mixing in some honest to goodness humor to get this point across. I have absolutely no doubt that serving under Mr. O'Malley was indeed an experience of a lifetime. As a prior enlisted man, I would have been honored to go into battle with him because of his down-to-earth leadership style. I guarantee you Mr. O'Malley had the respect of this men. For most of the book, Mr. O'Malley uses sexually graphic self deprecating humor to get across his real message -- at least 22 veterans commit suicide everyday." - Enlisted Sailor "This book is an excellent window into the mind of a male in a combat zone. True, gritty, raw and hilarious. If you have ever been lucky enough to enjoy the thrills of a sexually deprived combat zone, this book will bring back memories of smashing off knuckle babies in a plywood Porta John and playing spades and gay chicken in between firefights." - Enlisted Marine "Donny O'Malley says what many officers think, but don't say (out loud). His deviant behavior and lack of decency gave me some of the most side-splitting fits of laughter in my life. And as a someone who has served (and continues to serve) through four combat deployments, I understand the importance of laughter during shared misery. His words will make you recoil in disgust, laugh your ass off, and give you a newfound respect for the men and women who put life and limb on the line. Contrary to what some will say, this book is life line to all service members everywhere suffering through wounds seen and unseen... As well as closeted, degenerate officers. Thanks Donny!" -Marine Officer
