About the book:

In 1979 a secret unit was established by the most gifted minds within the US Army. Defying all known military practice and indeed the laws of physics they believed that a soldier could adopt a cloak of invisibility, pass cleanly through walls, and, perhaps most chillingly, kill goats just by staring at them. They were the First Earth Battalion. And they really weren't joking. What's more, they're back and fighting George Bush's War on Terror. Often funny, sometimes chilling and always thought-provoking, "The Men Who Stare at Goats" is a story so unbelievable it has to be true. "Not only a narcotic road trip through the wackier reaches of Bush's war effort, but also an unmissable account of the insanity that has lately been done in our names". ("Observer"). "Funny and gravely serious, what emerges is a world shrouded in secrecy, mystery and wackiness, where Warrior Monks and psychic spies battle it out for military thinking. Mind-blowing stuff". ("Metro"). REMEMBER NEW BOOKS MAKE GREAT AND AFFORDABLE GIFTS! WE ARE A SMALL FAMILY RUN BUSINESS WITH A LOVE FOR BOOKS AND CATS!
