If you are specifically going through or getting ready for deployment, you must read this book. Comprehensive and researched, it gives a very realistic portrayal of deployment from gearing-up to the homecoming. I really appreciated it’s psychological bent– having never gone through deployment, I didn’t know what to expect. It details the stages of deployment. Knowing what most people do ahead of time really made it easy to try to avoid the same pitfalls. I truly attribute some of the relative ease we had with preparing to deployment to this book.
