Brian Castner served three tours of duty in the Middle East, two of them as the commander of an Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit in Iraq. Days and nights he and his team would venture forth in heavily armed convoys from their Forward Operating Base to engage in the nerve-racking yet strangely exhilarating work of either disarming the deadly improvised explosive devices that had been discovered or picking up the pieces when the alert came too late. But The Long Walk is not just about battle itself. It is also an unflinching portrayal of the toll war exacts on the men and women who are fighting it. When Castner returned home to his wife and family, he began a struggle with a no less insidious foe, an unshakable feeling of fear and confusion and survivor's guilt.

This is a very powerful memoir of war and home, describing the development of "the crazy" and attempting to cope with it. This is a very personal and introspective memoir that goes into the mind and emotions much deeper than the movie "The Hurt Locker" - though they both are saying the same thing. This memoir also provides an interesting perspective on the attitudes and beliefs described in Sebastian Junger's "War" (read it also.) Highly recommended for anyone interested in the psychology of war as well as technical aspects of bomb demolition.
