Told with bathos and surprising humor, Checkmate is an explosive expose on the tragic trajectories of a lost generation - young Americans who exchanged the everyday for lives less ordinary.

The battlefield is not a place for thinking.
It is not a place for deliberation. For pausing. For inertia. It is a place for instinctive reactions. It is a place where the sum total of one's preparations alight. This book is a lifeline; a handbook for survival; a cry for a revolution of the mind before the chaos of war descends.
|«||Sanderson's comprehensive guide play's the mind of the modern land warrior in accessible prose.
This is War
|«||I'd recommend this book not only to soldiers in the field, but to every penpusher in Washington. This is a revolution in military thinking.
- Foreword written by Colonel J. Hawkmire.
