Music and Desert Storm Follow-up

Post by jpieslak » Thu Jun 25, 2009 12:08 pm

Hi Everyone,

Almost two years ago I ran a thread about music during desert storm, and I am really appreciative to all who replied, especially Dagger X-Ray. After working on the topic of music and war since 2004, I finally published a book called Sound Targets: American Soldiers and Music in the Iraq War ( It uses a lot of what was discussed by members of this forum to historically contextualize how American soldiers are interacting with music now. I wanted to let people know about the book and thank all who helped me with this--your contributions were invaluable. Jon Pieslak
