First edition.

"A short story collection from a decorated U.S. Navy veteran who served several combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan--a powerful depiction of life on the front lines of today's warfare. A mesmerizing debut collection that reveals what it is like to be a member of an elite special operations team, when so many missions take place behind night vision, ancient credos, and layers of secrecy. Told without a trace of bravado, and with a keen, Barry Hannah-like sense of the absurd, Will Mackin manages to capture the tragedy and heroism, degradation and exultation in the smallest details of war. Switching between settings at home and abroad, these eleven unforgettable stories explore the intense bonds, conflicting emotions, and surprising compassion that make up modern warfare"--
