Reviews

"Scott Huesing has done us all an honor and a favor, introducing us to Echo Company 2d Battalion 4th Marines during a horrific tour of duty in the cities of Ramadi and Rutbah in Iraq. This book has it all: Leadership at every level. Combat in all its horror and blood. Death and grieving. Success and failure. Post Traumatic Stress in the wake of war. Huesing paints in the details of dozens of his Marines, especially the eight who were killed in action and one who took his own life after his tour in Hell. You meet their families, as he did, and weep with them. Huesing gave his Marines the best leadership possible and did all he could to bring them all home."--Joseph L. Galloway "author of WE WERE SOLDIERS ONCE...AND YOUNG "
