These two books together give you the complete picture. One person found this helpful. I read this book a number of years ago from my local library and wanted to read it again. It is truly a classic warts and all look at the spearhead into Iraq.

Basically kids being fired up on Adrenalin, loud testosterone inducing music and acting out a real life Call Of Duty video game. But the reality of war soon hits home. This ain't no American Sniper hero worship piece it is brutal, honest and realistic. There's no 9 to 5 clocking in cards, rules of engagement or honor in War. It is packets of instant coffee to keep you awake, Call an air strike in if in doubt and a round from a 50 cal machine Gun will kill a man Woman or Child.

The men are the usual mixture of saints and sinners often at the same time for whom the USMC feels a vocation. They are shooting civilians one moment and trying to save them the next. Wright is excellent at sketching the boredom of soldiering, the sudden jag of combat, and the long recovery from the combat high.

If there is a villain in the piece of non-judgemental reporting it is the officers a number of whom disguised by nicknames are roundly criticised by the men and by the author.

First Recon is an elite formation and its performance makes for an interesting contrast with "Ambush Alley". Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I don't normally read books about the military, but this, which tells the story of a US Marine Recon unit advancing into Iraq at the first stage of the war against Saddam Hussein is fascinating and compelling.

There are a lot of personalities, though some do stand out. It may be the most warts-and-all portrayal of the confusion and uncertainty and sheer hazardous undertaking of modern warfare, and Wright deserves credit for showing so clearly what these young men encounter, fear, and have to put up with. An extremely insightful look into the reality of the initial invasion of Iraq in Gripping modern war story, a very real taste of the early days of the Iraq War. Another rare TV adaptation that's better than the book, it just gives you the grunt's eye view of things without the wider context, which they're unaware of.

I bought the book after watching the boxed DVD set. It's an excellent read and if you've watched the series it gives a better insight into the Marines of the First Recon Battalion, warts and all. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. I got this after rewatching the mini series, but there is very little new after the film, a few more in depth analysis of events, lots of pics and most interesting the follow up to what the gang have done since.

Worth a read but most of the action and virtually all the talking is identical to the film. See all 78 reviews. Would you like to see more reviews about this item?

There's a problem loading this menu at the moment. As they scope a tiny hamlet, the men of Bravo are frustrated by the capricious nature of the war, and Colbert struggles to defend the actions of the higher-ups. First Recon finally gets a chance to use their skills and exploit some intelligence from Iraqi locals about an ambush at a bridge ahead. They quickly discover that the enemy combatants still have some fight in them. Outside of Al Kut, Captain America is over-eager in his attempts to subdue a prisoner, while his men's growing disillusionment with his command is growing more apparent.

Meanwhile, Ferrando relays to his officers the news that his counterpart in the Regimental Combat Team has been relieved of duty despite achieving his objective. Encino Man takes Ferrando's speech to heart and puts Fick on noti Bravo reaches Baghdad, where the men are shocked by the sheer size and scope of the city.

Hampered by having only one translator for the battalion, First Recon can only send out sporadic patrols into the city. During those patrols they discover the list of problems the Iraqis face is much greater than the Marines could imagine.
