Summary
In this ground-breaking book, best-selling author and former U.S. Navy SEAL Dick Couch reports on the actions of the SEAL Task Unit during the Battle of Ramadi in Iraq s al-Anbar Province between 2005 and 2007.

Novelist and former Navy SEAL Couch chronicles the role of SEALs in the political and military battle to win back the Sunni tribal lands of al-Anbar and defeat insurgents in Ramadi from October 2005 to October 2007.

Still, the refreshingly honest candor about mistakes made and lessons learned deserves consideration by all public libraries. Color photographs are provided.
