Ignore the snobbish Kirkus review above and listen to the Wall Street Journal, Army Magazine and New York Journal of Books instead. This is a powerfully written book. As General Ray Odierno states in his forward, this is the most accurate account of the capture to date. You will not be disappointed. "With We Got Him! Steve Russell has written a superb combat memoir that immediately equals such contemporaries as Nathaniel Fick (One Bullet Away) and Craig Mullaney (The Unforgiving Minute). It may even rival classics like Hal Moore and Joseph Galloway’s, We Were Soldiers Once . . . And Young." -- Kenneth Allard, New York Journal of Books "An insider's story of the surprise tips, Napoleonic tactics and dramatic end of the manhunt in Iraq." – Wall Street Journal “Superbly written in plain English with asides that ring true. In short, Russell tells a good yarn about good people, both Americans and Iraqis, in Saddam’s stronghold, Tikrit. This good book is well worth buying.” -- ARMY Magazine
