My War: Killing Time in Iraq is a 2005 book by Colby Buzzell recounting the author's November 2003 - January 2005 deployment of post-invasion Iraq in the U.S. Army.
My War focuses on the down-to-earth experiences of a soldier, chronicling the daily life, absurdities and ennui in addition to the combat events. Its blunt, unrefined style has been praised for honesty as well as criticized for the heavy use of profanities. It incorporates some material from Buzzell's early journal and much from his later milblog of the same name, which became highly popular in its scant few weeks of operation.
Famous quotes containing the words time and/or killing:
“Surely tis by faith we are upheld thro such trialsjustice will be meted in time to those who fill soft places and malign men who perform heroic duties”
—Elizabeth Blair Lee (1818?)
“Does he who loves someone on account of beauty really love that person? No, for smallpox, which will kill beauty without killing the person, will cause him to love the person no more. And if one loves me for my judgment, for my memory, he does not love me, for I can lose these qualities without losing myself. Where, then, is this myself, if it be neither in the body nor in the soul?”
—Blaise Pascal (16231662)
