“Superbly captures the human dimension of war that is missing in so many books of this genre…An extremely powerful and personal volume that will dramatically impact both those who have experienced combat and those who have not.”
American Author’s Association
"Memorable…An emotional read…Throughout the book important facts come to light that people need to know if they are to understand the ongoing war against world terrorism…The book leaves no doubt that the Marines fighting in Iraq today are as capable as any in history…A masterpiece. The author has done a remarkable job preserving the experiences of those he served with. The telling of their stories gives us all a much better understanding of the on going war in Iraq. I highly recommend this book.”

“It was like reading Nolan’s House to House or Tonsetic’s Days of Valor again…The book was intense and personal.”
