On My Desk: Blackfive's Book

Over the weekend, I will mention some of the books currently on my desk, in various states of review. However, I just received a new book, The Blog of War, that deserves a special mention. It's a collection of milblog essays compiled by one of the best milbloggers in the 'sphere, Blackfive -- under his real name, Matthew Currier Burden. Simon & Schuster Paperbacks just released it in the "trade-book" format. It looks like an excellent read, and I'm hoping to get to it as soon as I get through a prior commitment to another author.

In the meantime, however, CQ readers can beat me to the punch by ordering the book for themselves. Let's support one of our own in his new venture.
