Great book, has some great detail, It show you how gritty this battle was in some places.
Gives you the side of the men that had to assault the city after they (insurgents) had time to prepare, tells you about command and higher ups that failed the Marines that paid dearly for there inaction. If your into war books with information and first had accounts this is a great listen.
Sorry but I just could not get into this book. Persevered for 2 hours then skipped to middle to see if it improved. It was like being in a lecture room listening to a dull subject given by an equally dull lecturer although I can't blame the narrator for the material he was given. One for the historians perhaps.
If you are as sick as I am of the press not providing adequate coverage of the heros still fighting in Iraq today, then you must read this book! It is well written and well read. Well worth purchasing.

I got this book because I'd read The March Up by the same authors. I found the book riveting in its portrayal of the gritty details of the battle of Faluja. Anyone who has a position on the war should read this book. I found it illuminating, troubling and ultimately affirming of the character of the American fighting man. Regardless of your politics you come away recognizing the courage and sacrifice of the grunt on the ground.
