Overview

None Left Behind: The 10th Mountain Division and the Triangle of Death by Charles W. Sasser

The 10th Mountain Division is known as the most deployed unit in the U.S. Army. Today the War on Terror has drawn it to Afghanistan and Iraq. To Lieutenant Colonel Mike Infanti's unit fell the pacification of a hellish hotbed of terrorism south of Baghdad dubbed "The Triangle of Death." Of the more than three thousand Americans killed since the start of the war, over one thousand were in this region.

Colonel Infanti assigned Delta Company to the most dangerous sector of the Triangle, a five-mile stretch of road that paralleled the Euphrates River in a series of blind s-curves where death stalked the Americans day and night. Delta knew they were virtually assured of getting hit on a daily basis. Each day and night became something to be dreaded and feared, exacting a heavy psychological toll on soldiers stressed to the limits of their mental and physical endurance.

In the predawn of May 12, 2007, two Humvees occupied by seven soldiers and an Iraqi translator were ambushed by insurgents. When the smoke cleared, four soldiers and the translator were dead and three were missing, presumably seized by the enemy. For over a year, Delta searched for their missing comrades, never giving up hope. Their creed of battle: None Left Behind

I will order this book after this post. My wife and I live in Black River next to Fort Drum. for years we have taken soldiers in and treated them like family.  These young men are from all over the country and are like our own. When they come back from deployment we are there to welcome them. I cant express the pride we have for these young men, they are polite and respectful. Sure they get a little rowdy and eat us out of house and home. but we would not have it any other way. All I care about is they are able to enjoy a little piece of home.

This is an easy read, the chapters are short. I will also say it is hard read for those of us who know this Infantry Unit and the Joes who fought as Polar Bears. There is one misstake. Our deployment prior to this deployment, that the book is about, we did not deploy with ad on amour or uparmored HUMMVEs.
