Editorial Reviews

Review

[The] account and history of the fighting spirit of the 'Marine Raiders' under fire and the relentless fourteen-year campaign by their leader to clear their names and 'keep their honor clean.'

-- "Major General Paul Vallely, US Army (Ret.), former deputy commander of the US Pacific Command"

A powerful depiction of combat and a battle for justice and vindication.

-- "Jason Van Camp, former US Army Special Forces operational detachment A-team leader"

An incredible account of how our front-line leadership overcame insurmountable odds. A must read for all leaders.

-- "Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney, US Air Force (Ret.), former assistant vice chief of staff, headquarters US Air Force"

His dramatic retelling of his experience as commander of Fox Company reads like a thriller--full of twists and turns--filled with unassuming heroes and deceitful villains.

-- "Rob Lorenz, producer for American Sniper and Flags of Our Fathers"

Reveals how the US military, desperate to protect its public image at all costs, sometimes sacrifices the honor of men in combat.

-- "David Zucchino, journalist for the Los Angeles Times" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
