As a result, I fear that a memoir of that nature would fall into the pitfall examined by Michael C. of "On Violence" of using a memoir as a way to carry out one's vendettas and personal grudges. Michael brings up the examples of some of the best war memoirs of the past decade, including those of Nathaniel Fick, Andrew Exum, and Kayla Williams, who flung considerable criticism at superior officers, other soldiers, and the omnipresent "fun police".
However, I don't necessarily agree with Michael C.'s claim that this is indicative of poor writing. Stories thrive on some form of conflict, and a war against an unseen insurgency often makes for a boring narrative. Thus, the conflict in the memoir would need to follow the "man vs. man " paradigm (which often involves painful self-criticism), or the "man vs. man" approach (the easiest). Certainly, it's quite easy, particularly for the more creative, "non-military" mind, to find considerable conflict with one's chain of command and military organizational culture as a whole.
Yet, although I think that I could probably write an entire novel entitled "War is Asinine", I have to admit that it would sound like petty griping, and wouldn't be to illuminating on the real struggle in Iraq.
Thus, I've toyed with the idea of creating a script for an episode of "Star Wars: Clone Wars", which would parallel some of the complexities of Afghanistan. Trouble is, unfortunately, that anything I write would likely fall into the realm of bad fan fiction. (Something I've lampooned quite frequently in my youth)
Anyone have an inside track at LucasArts?
