    Amazing history

    A wonderful telling of an overlooked acheivement. This is easily one of the best book on the Iraq War and shows just how remarkable our soldiers are. No political agenda, just good old fashioned story-telling. Our modern soldiers are worthy heirs of the Greatest Generation and Jim Lacey captures their compassion, loyalty, and courage perfectly.
