Summary

A soldier's job is to enage the enemy; Stacy Pearsall's job is to document the action. As a female combat photographer, she carries a gun, but her real weapon is her camera. Shooteris Pearsall's honest and unflinching account of her life behind enemy lines as told through photographs that reveal the realities of war. Pearsall was situated just north of Baghdad, in a place known as the Deadly Diyala Province, where the Battle for Baqubah ensued. She endured hardships that most readers could not fathomfrom close quarters combat with the enemy to recovering the body of a mortally wounded soldier. She has captured soldiers' last moments alive. In this photographic book, Pearsall sheds light on what life during war is really likeboth out in the field in the middle of the action and at rest. Detailed intimate essays about her relationships with soldiers, death, and combat accompany her striking photographs. She shares her poignant memories of the most dramatic and compelling moments in battle with brutal honesty through colorful stories and images.
