Nate Fick

Last night I watched the sixth episode of the hugely enjoyable Generation Kill mini-series. For the first time (I think), the sympathetic lieutenant's full name was spoken--previously it's been "Nate" or "Lieutenant Fick"--and I was sure I'd heard it before. So like a good child of the internet, I Googled the name, and sure enough: he's the author of One Bullet Away, which some of my classmates in War in the Modern World called the best of the 21st century accounts of warfare. I haven't read it but will soon be doing so. Meanwhile, I hope to catch the final episode of "Generation Kill" before heading off to Aspen for the annual ski week. It's a great show; pity about the title. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
