"First part of the naval documents" that the Asahi Shimbun reporter who served in the US Marine Corps at the time of the Iraq war, wrote until the time of departing from the battlefield before the war declaration and Baghdad capture.
"What I thought on the day of the second division of labor" which summarized the life and events at that time, what I thought and so on in an essay style. A memorial service that can be divided into three parts, "Go and. Stop" where the boss spelled out the circumstances of departure from the front line.
However, as I mentioned at the beginning P12, "This memorial service book wants to write with the travelers who witnessed the Iraq war in the near future", it is not a document of the Iraq war, but a reporter's document that went to the Iraq war It has become.
Therefore, I do not know the information I want to know even though I do not actually go to the battlefield, such as the feelings of the Iraqi people, the atmosphere of the country, the situation of the country, the situation of the land which became a battlefield, etc. The bottom is shallow.
It is this book's biggest difficulty to think that "It is not the content that anyone can write if you can write a good sentence there and take pictures too." Also, the adversary of reporters turning into a salaried worker, or the business order before Baghdad capture, the author to leave the battlefield.
The circumstances are written in "Go and. Stop". Certainly from the point of view of life it is not wrong, but how is it as a way for a newspaper company? I felt doubtful.

The good point of this book is that it is fairly fun to read as adventurous story, leaving a hard title.
A conversation with an American soldier who actually served, a story when the supply line was interrupted by a guerrilla attack and supply temporarily ceased to come straight.
How to spend time in the sandstorm, toilet and bathing, how to send the articles, Tigris. Scene where the author can think of the Euphrates civilization. Conflict as a reporter etc.,
As a war document anyway, it is a bad idea, but it is interesting as a reading material. I guess it depends on that.

A book that disappoints when you expect it to be because it is a book of a newspaper publication, but it is a surprisingly interesting work as a reading.
As for the documentary I read in order to know what the war that existed in the elementary school days was, what is it is shallow with the documentary and what is what after all?
Nonetheless, the status of the service life is interesting and it is interesting as a reading material. When reading this book, it may be good to divide it from the beginning to read it if it is not a document.
