Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War [book, nonfiction]

I REALLY LIKED THIS BOOK BUT IT FELT REALLY WEIRD. LIKE MARY ROACH LOVES TANGENTS BUT THIS WHOLE BOOK WAS REALLY SHORT AND FEELS LIKE IT JUST WENT TOTALLY OFF THE RAILS OF EVEN PRETENDING TO BE ON TOPIC. LIKE IT'S SUPER INTERESTING AND FUNNY THAT POLAR BEARS WANT TO EAT USED TAMPONS MORE THAN OTHER BLOODSOAKED PAPER DUE TO FISHY CHEMICALS BUT LIKE THE LAST THIRD OF THE BOOK SEEMED REALLY ODD AT HOW MORE AND MORE IT PULLED AWAY FROM THE ORIGINAL TOPIC AND NEVER RETURNED. THEN THE LAST CHAPTER ON MILITARY AUTOPSIES SEEMED LIKE IT WAS BACK ON SUBJECT BUT KINDA FELT LIKE IT MAYBE DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE, LIKE IT WAS AT THE END BECAUSE IT WAS LESS SUCCESSFUL AS A RESEARCH TOPIC. IT WAS STILL GOOD THOUGH. I GUESS I DON'T REALLY CARE IF EACH CHAPTER IS A COHESIVE WHOLE OR NOT IF EACH ESSAY IS ITSELF INTERESTING? 
  
 
PS. THE BEST PART OF THE WHOLE BOOK WAS THE FIRST CHAPTER WHERE THE FOOTNOTE WRITES 'COME IN THEIR FOXHOLES" TWICE. MARY ROACH!
