Editorial Reviews

New York Post
An intense account of war, raw as a wound, that reads as swiftly as a novel.
Marine Corps Gazette
Danelo's narrative is both entertaining and a tribute to the Marines who do the heavy lifting in Iraq.
Stars and Stripes
Its honesty is refreshing
Leatherneck
Blood Stripes is a superb cover-to-cover read, allowing any combat bookworm to mix and mingle with the complex problems of confronting hardened and deadly insurgency fighters.

An interesting ride. Rudyard Kipling meets Rolling Stone.
