Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
Major Jeff Barrington arrives in Iraq full of optimism and hope. However, he soon finds he does not have a job or a purpose in the dangerous world he now inhabits. After struggling to find a real mission and meeting a carnival of colorful characters, he finally stumbles across Skeleton Horse the critical link in all Coalition operations and a consummate driver of information, planning, and operations. Soon, Barrington unwittingly begins training to become the next Skeleton Horse. But first he must cast off all sense of himself and his own identity, including the only beautiful thing he has found in Iraq Lieutenant Tina Miles. Join Barrington in this Homeric environment that includes the cigar club of Iraq, a sadistic senior sergeant, the inner workings of life in war, a convoluted love triangle, and a young soldier out for revenge. Written by an Army Officer with twenty five years of service, Skeleton Horse is a comedic, adventure of bureaucracy at war. The novel is set squarely in a military landscape, but with universal storylines and characters who take the reader on a unique journey into the world of an Officer deployed to Iraq to fight an external enemy as he battles an internal one.
