"One of the best books to come out of the Iraq war."--"Financial Times"

"Stunning."--"Boston Herald"

"Engrossing."--"Washington Post"

"Shockingly honest."--"Entertainment Weekly"

"Complex."--"New York Times"



One of the best books to come out of the Iraq war. Financial Times

Stunning. Boston Herald

Engrossing. Washington Post

Shockingly honest. Entertainment Weekly

Complex. New York Times

"

"A pungently written combat narrative and a close-range study of a bunch of twentysomething warriors trying to get a handle on who they are."--Time

"Nuanced and grounded in details often overlooked in daily journalistic accounts...A complex portrait of able young men raised on video games and trained as killers."--The New York Times

"A stellar reporting achievement...Think Black Hawk Down or Michael Herr's Dispatches."--ottawa Citizen

"Shockingly honest."--Entertainment Weekly

"Visceral, sometimes shocking...a brutally honest acount of America's latest generation to experiencethe stark, horrifying realities of warfare."--Boston Herald

"Sidesteps Greatest Generation cliches to find the unexpected--a self-described 'Marine Corps killer' who listens to Barry Manilow, a corporal who compares a gunfight to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City."--The Washington Post

Wright wrote about [his] experience in a three-part series in Rolling Stone that was hailed for its evocative, accurate war reporting. This book, a greatly expanded version of that series, matches its accomplishment. Wright is a perceptive reporter...a personality-driven, readable and insightful look at the Iraq war's first month from the Marine grunt's point of view...compelling portraits...a vivid, well-drawn picture."--Publishers Weekly

"The language is blue, the blood red, and the action explosive. This may be the book of the Iraqi engagement."--Richmond Times-Dispatch

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

The shocking and visceral story of First Recon - the first unit of marines behind enemy lines in Iraq.
