“Axe’s text . . . and the complexity of Olexa’s realistically rendered pictures unite to communicate powerfully Axe’s fascination with war.”- Booklist
“His firsthand observations of episodes in combat are fresh and vivid.”- Publishers Weekly
“Olexa’s shadowed black-and-white art completes and extends Axe’s narrative perfectly. Essential as background on war and the conflict in Iraq.”- Library Journal
