<P<B&ldquo;A book about young men transformed by war, written by a veteran whose dazzling literary gifts gripped my attention from the first page to the last.&rdquo;[/B] &mdash;<B<IThe Wall Street Journal [/I][/B]<BR /><BR /><B&ldquo;Friedman&rsquo;s sober and striking new memoir . . . [is] on a par with Tim O&rsquo;Brien&rsquo;s <IThe Things They Carried[/I] -- its Israeli analog.&rdquo;[/B] &mdash;<B<IThe New York Times Book Review[/I][/B]<BR /><BR /> It was just one small hilltop in a small, unnamed war in the late 1990s, but it would send out ripples that are still felt worldwide today. The hill, in Lebanon, was called the Pumpkin; <Iflowers[/I] was the military code word for &ldquo;casualties.&rdquo; Award-winning writer Matti Friedman re-creates the harrowing experience of a band of young Israeli soldiers charged with holding this remote outpost, a task that would change them forever, wound the country in ways large and small, and foreshadow the unwinnable conflicts the United States would soon confront in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere.

<BR /><IPumpkinflowers[/I] is a reckoning by one of those young soldiers now grown into a remarkable writer. Part memoir, part reportage, part history, Friedman&rsquo;s powerful narrative captures the birth of today&rsquo;s chaotic Middle East and the rise of a twenty-first-century type of war in which there is never a clear victor and media images can be as important as the battle itself.<BR /><BR /> Raw and beautifully rendered, <IPumpkinflowers[/I] will take its place among classic war narratives by George Orwell, Philip Caputo, and Tim O&rsquo;Brien. It is an unflinching look at the way we conduct war today.
