If you ever wanted to learn a little about how not to move your family to a strange and exotic country or two, this true cautionary tale is perfect for you! Inhale the adventures of the Hall family as they move from crisis to crisis on whims and ideas, badly executed. Dealing with tropical nightmares, adventures with snakes (both human and reptile), vehicular challenges, culture shock(s), betrayal(s), career changes, debt dispersal, family diaspora, and the tragedies endemic in growing old – all crammed into an 18-month journey to self-acceptance. Sometimes happy, sometimes sad, but never boring, Phil Hall’s account of dragging his family across the world and back again is intriguing, funny, shocking, and sometimes heart-breaking. Oxfordshire, the Highlands of Scotland, Bangalore and North East Thailand are the backdrop to these memoirs of cock-ups galore!

An extraordinary account of the war in Iraq. 'Once we passed the checkpoint at the border, it hit me. I was like, Holy Shit, this is it, I'm entering a combat zone. Cool!' At twenty-six Colby Buzzell, unemployed and living at home, decided to join the US Army. Within months he was in Iraq, a machine gunner in the controversial Stryker Brigade Combat Team, an army unit on the cutting edge of combat technology and the first of its kind. Trapped amid 'guerrilla warfare, urban-style' in Mosul, Iraq, Buzzell was struck by the bizarre and often frightening world surrounding him. He began writing a blog describing the war - not as being reported by CNN or official briefings - but as experienced by the soldier on the ground. His story is a brutally honest and hard-hitting account of the absurdities of modern war. These are the real stories of the war: a firefight where the resistance came from 'men in black'; a night spent chain-smoking in the guard tower counting the tracer bullets being fired over the city; and the hesitation of a young soldier who had been passed around from platoon to platoon because he was too afraid to fight. My War is a powerful story of a young man and a war, unlike any you have read before.
