NEW YORK, April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Never before have civilians been able to fully appreciate a soldier's perspective of the military campaign in Iraq. Powerful images of war, from suffering and death to courage and freedom, are ingrained forever in these soldiers' minds. 330 Days: The Uncensored War in Iraq brings the reader to the front lines, revealing the evocative images of warfare. The 256-page photo documentary features uncut and uncensored original photographs from the war, accentuated by the harrowing stories told first-hand by the men who captured and lived through them.
Co-authored by Army Combat Enginer Pvt. Christopher Durante and Halliburton Contractor Julian Van Bellinghen, 330 Days: The Uncensored War in Iraq is a historical depiction seen through the eyes of those deployed on the ground in Iraq, allowing civilians an authentic glimpse into the chaos and comradeship in the midst of battle.
"It is certainly not for the fainthearted as it contains some extremely poignant, but necessary, images of dismembered bomb victims and those caught in street fighting and ambushes," wrote reviewer Robert Bluffied of Bookpleasures.com. "There is little need for words because the images, in the main, speak volumes about the total barbarity of war. The book is hard-hitting, harsh and concerning and clearly will shock, but they show some of the real dangers the coalition troops were exposed to in Iraq and now in Afghanistan."
Uncut and uncensored, 330 Days: The Uncensored War in Iraq captures personal narratives of the heroes who fought in Iraq and delivers the graphic truth about war that provokes controversy and public discussion. The book is as enlightening as it is controversial about the most prolific topic of the last decade.
330 Days: The Uncensored War in Iraq is now available on Amazon.com and is being adapted for television in a groundbreaking docu-series.
