War magnifies human emotions and passions: anger becomes rage, guilt becomes desperation, and resentment becomes hatred. In "The Grappling Hook", U.S. Army veteran F. X. Moughan writes of these emotions from the perspective of someone who has been there. With ten poignant short stories rich with humor and irony, disdain for hypocrisy, and admiration for leadership, Moughan tells the inside story of the conflict lurking beneath the war's surface: the human dramas of the soldiers fighting it. From group efforts to neutralize a roadside bomb to the harassment of a female soldier, from mental illness to middle-aged recruits, Moughan illuminates a hidden world of tragedy, anxiety, and everyday heroism.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

F. X. Moughan served in the Marines from 1978 to 1982. After 9/11, he enlisted in the Army National Guard and served as a Staff Sergeant in Iraq in 2005 and 2006. Since his return home, he has been teaching theology at Pius X High School in Bangor, Pennsylvania.

HASH(0x8cd23828) von 5 Sternen Perspective, not hype 25. April 2009
Von M. Ferguson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In his book, Mr. Maughan presents an engrossing series of narratives that clearly articulates the tribulations our soldiers face while simultaneously reminding us that sometimes you find laughs when you least expect them.

Far from being yet another prescriptive account of life in the field, this book makes us realize that through our experiences with the human condition we realize more similarities in our joys and difficulties than differences.

Written in a way that makes you wish you had the chance to hear these tales first hand on a bar stool or by a fire, The Grappling Hook is a wonderful read that will provide everyone some much needed perspective on life in the ranks...And life in general.

I assure you that no matter what your position on the war, you will put this book down realizing that we all share more in common than we think.

HASH(0x8cd29c00) von 5 Sternen Grappling is gripping ... 23. April 2009
Von W. Duffy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Grappling Hook is, in my opinon, the most insightful and clear portrait of the real life of soldiers in Iraq. The author offers us a picture of what it was, and is, really like on the front lines, without fillers and punch lines. Historians and patriots alike will celebrate this work for years to come. If you've ever wanted an inside look at what our soldiers sacrifice for us, and how they deal with the challenges of modern warfare, treat yourself to this book today.

HASH(0x8cd2af84) von 5 Sternen No BS stories about life in Iraq. 18. Mai 2016
Von John T Evans - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I can truly relate to some of the stories in this book, as they remind me of some of my own. The author painted a colorful picture of his life and experiences in Iraq and life in general. I hope Mr Maughan will follow up with more short stories about exciting journeys in his life. I would certainly love to read about them.
