Michael Yon

Michael Yon is a freelance observer attached to Deuce Four in Mosul. As former Special Forces, he is much more suited to war reporting than Blondie McWarsucks in the hotel in Baghdad.

READ IT ALL. You're not gonna get anything like this anywhere else, and IMHO that's a damned shame. Whether you're pro- or anti-action in Iraq and elsewhere, you will be treated to straight-ahead accounts of a unit in action, mistakes and all, heroism and all.

he's self-financed, too. Throw him a couple of bucks; consider it a subscription if you must.
