About this product
- DescriptionA raw, unfiltered view of the early days of the Iraq invasion--and the haunting aftermath. In a story taken from his personal war journal, a Marine infantryman tells the tale of Alpha Company's march into Baghdad and the capture of Saddam's palace. This is the hard-hitting, straightforward memoir of the brave Marines--the first boots-on-the-ground in Iraq--who paved the way with their blood, sweat, and tears. The story of the first American to die in action in the Iraq War. The account of incent civilians killed in the crossfire. The private repercussions--how young Marines cope with violent death and killing. In his own words, unpolished and unrefined, rich with the voice and flavor of a young Marine in first action, Jesse Odom, leader of Second Platoon's First Squad, gives us a memorable and poignant tale of incence stripped away, of lives lost, of battle, bloodshed, camaraderie, laughter and grief. And finally--a type of healing. Meet the Devil Dogs of Alpha Company, of The Fighting Fifth Marines--their heroes, their fallen in arms.
