AUTHOR Bellavia, David
PUBLISHER Findaway World (11/01/2009)
PRODUCT TYPE Audio (Pre-Recorded Audio Player)


"A rare and gripping account of frontline combat."--LTG (Ret.) H.R. McMaster, author of Dereliction of Duty

"They used to say that the real war will never get in the books. Here it does, stunningly." --Thomas E. Ricks, author of Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq and Making the Corps

"To read this book is to know intimately the daily grind and danger of men at war."--Anthony Swofford, New York Times bestselling author of Jarhead

One of the great heroes of the Iraq War, Staff Sergeant David Bellavia captures the brutal action and raw intensity of leading his Third Platoon, Alpha Company, into a lethally choreographed kill zone: the booby-trapped, explosive-laden houses of Fallujah's militant insurgents. Bringing to searing life the terrifying intimacy of hand-to-hand infantry combat, this stunning war memoir features an indelibly drawn cast of characters, not all of whom would make it out alive, as well as the chilling account of the singular courage that earned Bellavia the Medal of Honor: Entering one house alone, he used every weapon at his disposal in the fight of his life against America's most implacable enemy. Bellavia has written an unforgettable story of triumph, tragedy, and the resilience of the human spirit.
