The Yellow Birds
By Kevin Powers


4.5 out of 5

The story of two young men who forge a friendship while serving their nation in Iraq. This is a story of Private Murphy, and Private Bartle as they struggled to keep the good guys alive, kill the bad guys, and make sense of the world that they currently called home.

This book was incredibly well written for someone who is not an author. The story tells a (mostly) true story of two young men who are in the Iraq war. The story itself is incredible, and the way the story is told, skipping around through the years, actually helps the reader to understand how Private Bartle thinks and remembers his experiences. I did tear up at a few points, but never full on sobbing. It is a story about war, there are some things that you should expect. I had to read this for school, but I thought that it was really good, and I would definitely recommend it to others!
