Excellent book. Recommend it to every American. You have no idea what it is all about if you don't read first hand accounts like this one.

To read life events from the perspective of first-hand account is to actually understand, engage in distant ideas, and be given the opportunity to experience empathy. I felt his questions, his pain, and so many other moments he shared. We forget that wars involve real people having to make life and death decisions faster than you decide what's for dinner. We forget families suffer through the unknowns. We forget that young men VOLUNTEER for what we condemn. I had to check my doubts and skepticism at the cover.

This book gave a look into the war in Afghanistan. Meyer pulls no punches on the American involvement and the affect it has had on his life. this was a great book.

This book shows how a man is raised, a soldier is trained, and a hero is born. This simple read sheds light on the melding of young men into true brothers, dependent upon each other for basic safety.  Carrying valor to a level seldom  seen and rarely honored, Dakota Meyer's story of battle is simultaneously  inspiring and heart-wrenching. This is one of the  first-hand accounts of war that all Americans should read. This book also gives some insight into PTSD and survivors guilt. I wear a rock given to me by a returning serviceman and made into a necklace so that every day I am reminded of the men and women who are serving and have served. Thank you Dakota, and all of your brothers  and sisters in arms.

A stunning look at combat and the men who fight. I have read this book several times and it still moves me when I read it.

A no holds barred account of the bravery displayed by true heros inspite of the ineptness shown by military command. You will have a hard time putting this book down.

although i am a marine and couldnt be prouder of this young marine and his courage i found who ever helped him write his story did a terrible job. i think if he would of wrote his story word for word it would of been a better book. i am proud to share the title marine with him. but think the story could of been done better.

Excellent book, very well written. It was very heart touching with all the stress that was placed upon Dakota Meyer after the fight that he was awarded the MOH for.

This was a GREAT book and easy read. Dakota Meyer is someone everyone can inspire to be like and the younger generation to look up to.

I thought this was a well written book. The agony of Dakota's loss of his buddies is vivid, real and heartbreaking. I can understand his feelings about receiving the Medal of Honor. He thought he accepted it for his buddies and himself. Thank God for people like him. We would be no where without them.

Into the Fire by Dakota Meyer gave a different outlook on what it takes to be in the military. He describes what soldiers must go through mentally and physically to be able to handle the tests of war. He also talks about how he came to know the military which not many military books give a true outlook on. He gave a true and honest depiction of what it is like to pull the trigger and possibly killing someone, it means that he is ending someone’s life without even knowing who he is or what he has done in his life. I was honestly shocked at some of the things that Dakota had to endure and had to remind myself at some points that this book was a true story and not a made up depiction of what war could be like, this is what war is like. If you are someone who enjoys a book that has plenty of action then I highly recommend this book. This book is also great for those who want to learn some more terminology of the military and understand some of the skills that they have. This is an eye opening book that I highly suggest for all adult readers.

I have a dozen or more books on wars. My thinking was this book was gone to be on the lines of Lone Survivor . Not even close. I no different strokes theory so maybe I was wrong about the book. Buy it and read . See for your self. By the way I gave Lone Survivor 5 stars
