Blogger CBFTW to write a book--this is kick ass news

Ok, since the new entire INFDL team (good to have ya, Q) has represented today, then I shall make it complete. One of the things I found most newsworthy lately was the revelation that blogger CBFTW has been hired to write about his complete war experience in Iraq for a fall 2005 publication. If the publisher allows him to use the same colorful language from his blog days last year, then I think his book will be, very simply, a book for the ages. There's no need to spend much time on his blog nowdays, since he has had to remove every post relating to military operations, i.e., the good stuff. Nothing of much worth is on there anymore. No more original, scary and entertaining-as-hell stories of going out on S&D operations while listening to Slayer and working the "50." I guess we'll have to wait for the book. His blog days only lasted about 2 1/2 months before he was discovered and made to stop blogging by his superiors. There are a couple of funny and/or revealing posts that are still available that give you a taste of his literary flair. Here: Combat Jack (scroll down), and his first ever post.

Sean Adds: Hell, yes. TommAy directed me to this very talented writer a few months ago, and I agree that his work is a must read for all. Som of the best combat-patrol writing I've seen since Orwell.
