I downloaded this because I'd just finished watching Generation Kill on TV and it got me really interested in the lives of military personnel. I did enjoy this book. It feels like an honest portrayal - the storyteller comes over as very brave and strong but also fallible and, on several occasions, a little bit deranged. And in a lot of the sections you feel like you know what it would be like to be out there. The bits I liked least were the (long) battle scenes. He doesn't give any real sense of time so you never know whether the events are spread over days or just minutes. Also he seems to take a lot of very odd decisions which kind of jar with the narrative. I'm sure a lot of us would do some strange things under that kind of stress, but it's never really explained. But overall still a worthwhile and interesting listen and a good insight into the life of a soldier

Excellent book, a bit repetitive at times but overall a very good book. The narration is great, this guy can do all the voices so well that really helps.
Would recommend this book to anyone interested in reading about war an war in Iraq, an the taking of Falluga.....⁉️
David Bellavia's memoir "House to House" describes the intense fighting and the sacifices made by our forces in Iraq in raw detail. If you are looking for a first-hand account of what is really going on in Iraq then this is the book you should download. David, thank you for your service to our country.

This book gives a brilliant insight of what it was like to be in the US Army, in Iraq, post Saddam. The author is very funny, honest and doesn't spare the listener from any of the horrors of war. This is a book you must get.
