Recommends it for: mature adults (unfortunately)
It is difficult knowing how to rate this book. The content is very much worth 5 stars, is high impact, and should be known and appreciated by all American citizens, but the gratuitous and intense use of vulgar and obscene language very much limits the scope of who should be reading it. I realize that the graphic language and description is the reality in the extreme stress environment in which the troops live, but the author goes beyond quotes and uses offensive language himself to drive home th ...more

Good book
Drew
A (seemingly) well intentioned but entirely half-baked book. Sasser butchers unit identification (2nd BCT of the 31st Regiment anyone?) again and again, as well as thinking call signs are vehicles (Iron Claw). This book had little or no editing before going to print. Much of the narrative also seems forced and awkward as the author attempts to recreate the language and mood of the soldiers based on limited interviews.
The story is of the soldiers of D Co, 4-31 who were overrun and killed or ca

This book was mostly well-written. I had two problems with it: there weren't maps of the battle area, which seems odd since it takes place in pretty much the same area over and over. The other was that the opening chapter seemed confused about military unit terminology. It wasn't too important to the story, but it seemed out of place in a work written by a former serviceman.

The story is mostly about one company in one spot, attempting to quiet down one stretch of road. Eventually, they do just t

Its an old cliche but, if the politicians and world leaders had to endure and survive the hardship and trauma of life on the frontline of a war, we would have many fewer wars.

The US 10th Mountain Division is the most deployed unit in the US Army. In 2007, the 10th is deployed for its second tour of Iraq and relieves the 101st Airborne in the Triangle of Death between the Euphrates River and Anbar Province, south of Baghdad. This book is about the pacification of the Triangle by the 4/31 of the 1

Im very good friends with SGT Parrish. and he and i have talked in detale about the book and what happened over there... For the most part the book is acurate in every way.Some things were not ment to be printed due to respect for the men who died.. i have nothing but respect for all the men and women who have served over there.It was hard to read the book knowing what i did about the facts.

I am very good friends with SGT Parrish. He and i have talked about the events in the book. its a very well written book and mostly acurate in detales. its an honor to know him and know what they 10th did out there. Ive talked to him in detale about the events and the men who lost there lives.. and its hard to hear what these men went thru and not cry for all of them...

A history of the 10th Mountain"s deployment based on reports and interviews. As with all the Iraq war stories, you despair for the soldiers and the unbelievibal horrors they have to face. Written later in the war than some of the other's I've read, at least this one is more optomistic on the effects of the surge to turn the corner. I pray the author is correct.
Patrick Harmon
I think that the schoolyard vernacular this story is told in is distracting. It contorts what could be a reverent account of these events into something like satire.
