    Military service and soldiering couldn t be farther from my own experience, and Wax Bullet War isn t the sort of book I d ordinarily choose to read But a friend who s Marine veteran recommended it highly, and trusting her judgment, I gave it a chance.As I read the book, I felt as though serving in the military was almost as big a stretch for author Sean Davis as it would have been for me, and because of that, his account was all theaffecting Here was someone who is an artist, who lived i Military service and soldiering couldn t be farther from my own experience, and Wax Bullet War isn t the sort of...
