Finished Krakauer's "Where Men Win Glory", a true story about Pat Tillman, who gave up his football career to join the army, fought in Afghanistan and died there in some friendly-fire incident. Nice book -- Tillman is kind of stereotype-defying -- he looks like a comic-book hero, but comes off as an intelligent, principled man who surprisingly didn't even agree with the Iraq war. After his demise, there's a nauseating cover-up because apparently his story needs a bit of massaging for political purposes... Anyhow, much enjoyed this book.
For a bit different perspective, I also read Kyle's "American Sniper" autobio -- a Navy seal with 160 confirmed kills -- he's seen a lot more action than Tillman. He's more of the god-country-family-cowboy type, and seems to enjoy the war and "killing bad guys" a lot -- maybe a bit too much... The story is not too-well written, but I suppose it gives a good look into his life and motivations... Of course, he's no Simo Häyhä...
