Navy Museum Lunchtime Seminar: The Blog of War

I thought this to be apropos for our class- and the GWOT.

Thursday, September 14, 2006, 12:00 noon:

Lunchtime Lecture and Book Signing with the author of Blog of War, Matthew Currier Burdern

In Blog of War, author Matthew Burden presents selections from some of the best of the military blogs, the purest account of the many voices of this war. This is the first real-time history of a war, a history written even as the war continues. It offers a glimpse into the full range of military experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq, from the decision to enlist right through to homecoming. Blog of War provides an uncensored, intimate, and authentic version of life in the war zone. Dozens of voices come together in a wartime choir that conveys better than any second-hand account what it is like to serve on the front lines today.
