I dont mind the interview style, it reminds me of World War Z. That first interview with the MACO really irks me, seriously, why didn't the author just watch Band of Brothers interviews with the old paratroopers. They didn't sound like that.
For some reason (and maybe OT a bit), this reminded me of M&M's ENT novel The Last Full Measure
, which dealt quite heavily with the MACO's.
I seem to recall a bit of an uproar about that novel..
anything rings a bell?
