Reviews

"This book is an embed. The adrenaline and the boredom, the fear and the pain, the valor and the moral vertigo that Lucian Read saw during almost 4 years of deployments with US Marines comes through with an intensity I found traumatic- which is to say I found it true. It belongs on the shelf of anyone who wants to know the reality of what America did in Iraq." --Quil Lawrence, Former Baghdad Bureau Chief, NPR
"Lucian Read takes photos so arresting they remain imprinted on your mind long after you've seen them, haunted by the intensity, intimacy, violence, ugliness and beauty of a Marine deployment." --Phil Klay, National Book Award-winning author of Redeployment
"All of Which I Saw" paints a psychological portrait of young men doing their nation's bidding in harm's way. Images of young Americans and even younger Iraqis fill the pages as Lucian wades through the humanity of people caught in a clash of cultures. Hopefully this book will become dog-eared by future politicians as they ponder how to best resolve tomorrow's challenges. --Charles Grow, Interim Director, National Museum of the Marine Corps
"Lucian intimately captures the experiences of our wars and deployment in Iraq. Whenever someone asks me what it was like over there, I wish I could just hand them a copy of "All of Which I Saw."" --Zach Iscol, former Marine and Co-founder of Task & Purpose and the Headstrong Project
