Jarhead

Anyone read or heard the book “Jarhead” by Anthony Swofford? Just curious to any reactions from people

Hey there,
I have read this book, and it is awsome. One of the best i have ever read. I read alot of the Non-Fiction war novels. This brings you right into the game. Its worth buying

I agree. Good book. Another book in the same genre; Spare Parts by Buzz Williams is also worth reading.

Is it about a Scout/Sniper platoon?

the book is about Anthony Swofford enlistment in the Marine Corps and everthing that goes with being a Marine. Damn good book,

Really good book. He basically tells you how he saw things and doesn’t try to fill it with any propoganda BS. I got it from my roommate who is in Marine ROTC and also enjoyed it, if that carries any weight.
