Overview

Major Brian Wortinger, Instructor, Westpoint United States Military Academy ~ "I have little doubt that the efforts of his team saved many American and Iraqi lives during their time deployed to Sadr City and Tissa Nissan, and for this I will be eternally grateful to Boone and his men." .

Matt Miller, Senior Intelligence Analyst ~ "Voodoo in Sadr City" is a piercing story of one Soldiers effort to accomplish the mission in an unanticipated insurgency mired by inept leadership and overwhelming institutionalized ignorance. The story defines the struggle of a generation of Soldiers face to face with their personal demons in an unpopular war few supported and fewer understood. This book is a prerequisite for anyone attempting to understand rise of Shiaism and the role of the Muqtada al-Sadr and the Mahdi militia in the political recasting of the Iraqi national framework.

Rick Worthington, News Director KKOH Radio, Reno Nevada ~ A must read for anyone who has ever wondered what it is really like to be a U.S. Soldier in Iraq. This is a boots on the ground - no punches pulled - eye opening account of life and death in Sadr City.

Michael Weiss, Supervisory Special Agent ~ This is a high speed, down and dirty education on the reality of Asymmetric Warfare as it relates to the radical Islamic threat . . . . . an almost prophetic finished product.

Alicia Adams, LtCol, USAFR, NC ~ An insightful job of getting the reader to understand what the true issues and problems were in Iraq . . . it helped me to make more sense out of what I saw and was told as an Emergency Room nurse in Balad.
