“…a candid, vivid diary of war, refreshing for its realism and its lack of pretense.”
Bing West, Author of No True Glory: A Frontline Account of the Battle for Fallujah

Experience the Iraq War through the journal and letters of a Marine who fought in Fallujah from March to October 2004.

  • accept the loss of friends to horrific deaths
  • cope with the aftermath of witnessing grotesque tragedies
  • withstand the constant fear of mortar shells
  • survive combat while completing his mission
  • reconcile his faith with the realities of war
  • deal with criticism from the home front
  • readjust to life at home
