"Mass Casualties by Michael Anthony is a true to life exposé of the absurdity of the war in Iraq. Anthony lays bare the hyper-reality of American knowinglessness about Iraq, and captures the day-to-day insanity of the war. Mass Casualties is a must read for patriot Americans concerned with the US global empire and the undisclosed truths of the Iraq occupation."

"Michael Anthony's candid narrative of his service in
Iraq is far
removed from the glamorized picture of military life that has become a staple
of our mass media. Instead, we are confronted with the raw reality of death,
deception and dishonor; a world of men and women psychologically strained to
the breaking point that is rife with corruption, infidelity and the abuse of
power. In one of his crises of conscience, Anthony finds himself wishing that
he could "forget everything and go back to thinking that everyone in the
military is an American hero". You will share his sense of disillusionment
after reading this eye-opening memoir."
