The Source: The Odd And Sometimes Icky Science Of Humans At War
From shark repellent and caffeinated meat to the high-tech fashion of war and diarrhea as a national security threat, "Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War" by best-selling, non-fiction writer Mary Roach addresses oddball topics not found in any other book about our nation's defenders.
Roach is infectiously curious, with a knack for unearthing the interestingly icky and a humorous style that makes tackling uncomfortable subjects bearable. In her latest endeavor, Roach delves into the science behind soldiers' most challenging issues and developments to help alleviate them.
