Braving the Fear: The True Story of Rowdy US Marines in the Gulf War Douglas Foster read online review & book description:

Best Seller -
These Marines battled two unknown and unseen enemies, one was the impending chemical attacks by the coming enemy and the other was each other boredom. With deadly attitudes and skill, they found themselves training, mentally preparing, and taunting each other endlessly for entertainment. Taunting for war Marines called it.
From these hilarious and often dangerous and challenging gambles to get over the boredom, one can only imagine what the deadly symbol of Swift, Silent, and Deadly were doing. Besides preparing for war, their big young EGOs shared a toxic need for action, excitement, shooting, and friendship to keep alive the Esprit de Corps. Only, the enemy wasn't ready to fight...yet.
This book presents to you the real men behind the stern faces and breathtaking uniforms that dazzle the imagination of discipline and ability. It captures the real comradary of young men in the military and why they speak of it their tour of duty for their lifetime. It brings to you the reality of the ghosts of a chemical war to which every marine prepared, feared, but carried on ready for skin-pealing death.
Desperate to release pent up training, adrenaline, and constant chemical ghost attacks, these men will make you laugh and cry at their tactics, make you warm and make you think about their choice of words, they will let you feel the fear of their weakness and their bravery to overcome it. But most importantly, they will help you realize, that even in war, men still act like men and sometimes bored children.
