I'm sure that many, if not all of the regular Blackfive readership, have heard of Mike Yon and read some of his work. If you haven't checked in on him recently, though, he has a series of despatches written as an embed with British paratroopers that is just outstanding -- as good as anything Mike has yet done. And that means it's in the same league as the best of Ernie Pyle. Part 1 here.
