Follow legendary First Sergeant Brad Kasal on a courageous mission to rescue fallen comrades under intense enemy fire in the notorious Battle for Fallujah. In a riveting first-hand account, Kasal takes readers into the deadly din of war. This is warfare described by men who have known its pain before but who step forward to face it again. In face-to-face fighting, Kasal is shot seven times and uses his own body to shield a fellow marine from the blast of an enemy grenade - earning him nomination for the Medal of Honour, America's highest military award. More important to him than medals, Kasal's inspiring leadership has earned him the respectful nickname of 'Robo-Grunt' from his men, hard warriors who are not easily impressed. Readers of this compelling story will gain insights into modern warfare, an appreciation for the courage and sacrifice of Americans in uniform, and an awesome respect for the depth of their commitment to leave no one behind. In addition to tales of battlefield valour, this inspiring book includes details of Kasal's equally amazing fight to rebuild his broken body and recover his strength to resume his career in the United States Marine Corps.
It is a book that is hard to put down and a story that's impossible to forget.
