One of the great heroes of the Iraq War, Staff Sergeant David Bellavia captures the brutal action and raw intensity of leading his Third Platoon, Alpha Company, into the lethally choreographed kill zone of booby-trapped, explosive-laden houses of Fallujah’s militant insurgents. Bringing to searing life the terrifying intimacy of hand-to-hand infantry combat, this stunning war memoir features an indelibly drawn cast of characters, not all of whom would make it out of the city alive
Bellavia also recounts his story of courage: entering one house alone, he used every weapon at his disposal in the fight of his life against America’s most implacable enemy. All who will read this—one of the best narratives to come from Operation IRAQI FREEDOM–will understand the terror and hardship the infantryman must endure.
