War is hell…but sometimes it’s also funny as hell.
Combat and Other Shenanigans is Lieutenant Piers Platt’s firsthand account of his year as a cavalry platoon leader during the Iraq War. Wry, action-packed, and poignant, Combat and Other Shenanigans is the absurd-but-true story of the antics the world’s finest soldiers get up to when no one high-ranking is watching.
“Few war stories are both comical and serious, but this one-year memoir is unique.”
-Crystal Book Reviews
“An honest account of one officer's tour in Iraq. 5 stars.”
