Description

"To read this book is to know intimately the daily grind and danger of men at war." -Anthony Swofford, author of Jarhead 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 a lethally choreographed kill zone-the booby-trapped, explosive-laden houses of Fallujah's militant insurgents-in this stunning war memoir. Bringing to searing life the terrifying intimacy of hand-to-hand infantry combat, House to House is far more than just another war story. Populated by an indelibly drawn cast of characters, it develops the intensely close relationships that form between soldiers under fire. Their friendships, tested in brutal combat, would never be quite the same. What happened to them in their bloody embrace with America's most implacable enemy is a harrowing, unforgettable story of triumph, tragedy, and the resiliency of the human spirit. A soldier's memoir that is destined to rank with the finest personal accounts of men at war. An instant classic, this timeless story features a new afterword and a question and answer section with the author.
