Iraq, late 2007. Lieutenant Matt Gallagher arrives just as US policy shifts from lethal operations to counter-insurgency. He encounters a world where nothing is as it seems. Friends are enemies, reconciliation is war, roads are bombs and silence is deadly. Nothing left to do except 'embrace the suck'...and blog about it. Matt Gallagher's response was to write an on-line journal (called "Kaboom") which quickly went viral. Read by thousands of soldiers who recognised its unflinchingly honest portrayal of the real war, as well as high-ranking Pentagon officials and interested parties around the world, "Kaboom" was shut down by the US Army in June 2008. Now you can read the whole story, based on that brilliant, acerbic, banned blog. "Kaboom" paints a shockingly original and uncompromising portrait of a savage war the world is still struggling to understand.
