COMMANDO makes for damn good reading

While I'm here in Iraq, I just wanted to give a quick shout out to Jack Badelaire of the Post-Modern Pulps blog. I read his novel Commando just before leaving. My head was getting full of all the Iraqi archaeology and politics I'd been reading and I needed to take a break.

Commando is an action novel set in World War Two. I'll write a full review later (I'm a bit busy right now) so let me just say that's it's an action-packed ride that catches the era and the men's action genre very well. Check it out!

Was reading a novel filled with gory fatalities a good idea before coming to a war-torn region with no flak jacket or firearm? Nah, probably not, but I didn't care. I was too entertained! :-)
