The author can be best described as sympathetic and determined. Just by reading the first few pages you can tell that he really wants people to understand what life is like for these men and if you think your life is bad at any point; considered theirs. When Junger says; " at night I put my vest and helmet at my feet and kept my boots tied loosely so that I could jam my feet into them but not trip over the laces." they all live in fear of not knowing what could happen. Another idea Junger talks about is where all the men come from some are straight A students, other drug addicts that feel into a brotherhood. These men are all different in the beginning but not the end.
