maryroach

Grunt tackles the science behind some of a soldier’s most challenging adversaries—panic, exhaustion, heat, flies, noise. Author Mary Roach also visits a repurposed movie studio where amputee actors help prepare Marine Corps medics for the shock and gore of combat wounds. She discovers how diarrhea can be a threat to national security, and why a zipper is a problem for a sniper. Roach answers questions not found in any other book on the military: How is a wedding gown like a bomb suit? Why are shrimp more dangerous to sailors than sharks? Take a tour of duty with Roach, and you’ll never see our nation’s defenders in the same way again.
