Read about the Penguin Group (USA) partnership with HBO in
support of the Generation Kill Troop Drive here.
They were called a generation without heroes.
Then they were called upon to be heroes.
Within hours of 9/11, America's war on terrorism fell to
those like the twenty-three Marines of the First Recon Battalion,
the first generation dispatched into open-ended combat since
Vietnam. They were a new pop-culture breed of American warrior
unrecognizable to their forebears-soldiers raised on hip hop, video
games and The Real World. Cocky, brave, headstrong, wary and mostly
unprepared for the physical, emotional and moral horrors ahead, the
"First Suicide Battalion" would spearhead the blitzkrieg on Iraq,
and fight against the hardest resistance Saddam had to offer. Now a
major HBO event, Generation Kill is the national bestselling book
based on the National Magazine Award- winning story in Rolling
Stone. It is the funny, frightening, and profane firsthand account
of these remarkable men, of the personal toll of victory, and of
the randomness, brutality and camaraderie of a new American War.
