Product description

Review

"Wow! One of the very best books to come out of this war. A powerful and gripping narrative that gives the reader an insight into the combat that our warriors have experienced, across two decades of war. Finally, this book provides a deep and infinitely valuable insight for anyone who would strive to understand the "echoes" that resonate with all who serve."
-Lt. Col. Dave Grossman (ret.), author of On Killing and On Combat.

"A book so gripping it will be read by a generation of grunts and leaders, vividly depicting how, in crisis after crisis, mutual trust pulls a unit, or business, through hard times. No preaching-no pulled punches. A rock-solid description of grit and perseverance at its best."
-Bing West, bestselling author of ten books on combat, Vietnam veteran, and former Assistant Secretzry of Defense for International Security Affairs under President Ronald Reagan

"Demonstrates the nature of war and how the special spirit that Marines bring to the fight is virtually eternal. A fine, gripping look at what war is all about for a new generation of warriors."
--Dale Dye, USMC (Ret), American actor and author, decorated Vietnam veteran, and owner of Warriors, Inc.

"An amazing tribute that provides insight into what I never saw of my brother's valor--a raw glimpse of how my pain was the Marines' pain too--this book must be read and shared."
--Christopher Libby, Gold Star brother of Corporal Dustin J. Libby, Killed in Action December 6, 2006, Ramadi, Iraq

"Scott Huesing and the 'Magnificent Bastards' he led in Iraq know the true face of war. Echo in Ramadi is a raw, firsthand account of how they persevered against harrowing odds in what was once the bloodiest place on earth. It's also an inspiring chronicle of unwavering courage, remarkable compassion, and steadfast commitment. The respect and devotion Huesing has for his Marines is apparent on every page. If you, or a loved one you know, ever served in harm's way, Echo in Ramadi is an essential 'must read!'"
--Oliver North, LtCol, USMC (Ret), host of War Stories on Fox News Channel, #1 bestselling author, and has been embedded with more than sixty U.S. and allied military units since 9-11-01--including 2d Battalion, 4th Marines, the "Magnificent Bastards"
