Love My Rifle More Than You

“Chick-lit meets battlefield memoir in Love My Rifle More Than You: Young and Female in the US Army, the title taken from a marching song,” writes Phillip Sherwell in today’s London Telegraph, reviewing (ever so briefly) former US Army Sergeant Kayla Williams new book on her experiences in Iraq. A five year veteran in military intelligence, an Arabic linguist, Williams begins by observing that “Sex is the key to any woman soldier’s experiences in the American military. No one likes to acknowledge it, but there’s a strange sexual allure to being a woman and a soldier.”
“Love My Rifle” looks as though it’s worth a read.
