Readers interested in getting an inside look at what it was like to be on the front lines in Iraq can pick up a copy of the new book from Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Craig Walker, which details one soldier's experience going to the war and back home again.

"Ian Fisher: An American Soldier" features photos and reporting from Walker detailing the experiences of one soldier from the time he left his hometown in Lakewood, Colorado, through his deployment in Iraq, and back.

Eileen Gittins of Blurb, the company publishing the book, said the pictures and stories will give people a better understanding of what it is like for soldiers serving in the nation's armed forces.

"This is a powerful, emotional and important story," she said. "Through incredible photography and reporting this book brings to life for all of us the experiences of a young soldier being asked to serve his country."

The book will be sold for $39.95 on the company's website.
