Description

"In war, destruction is everywhere. It eats everything around you. Sometimes it eats at you." (Major Scott Huesing, Echo Company Commander)

From the winter of 2006 through the spring of 2007, 250 marines from Echo Company, Second Battalion, Fourth Marine Regiment, fought daily in the dangerous, dense city streets of Ramadi, Iraq, during the Multi-National Forces Surge ordered by President George W. Bush. The marines' mission: to kill or capture anti-Iraqi forces. Their experience: like being in hell.

Now Major Scott A. Huesing, the commander who led Echo Company through Ramadi, takes listeners back to the streets of Ramadi in a visceral, gripping portrayal of modern urban combat. Bound together by brotherhood, honor, and the horror they faced, Echo's marines battled day to day on the frontline of a totally different kind of war, without rules, built on chaos. In Echo in Ramadi, Huesing brings these resilient, resolute young men to life and shows how the savagery of urban combat left indelible scars on their bodies, psyches, and souls. Like war classics We Were Soldiers, The Yellow Birds, and Generation Kill, Echo in Ramadi is an unforgettable capsule of one company's experience of war that will leave listeners stunned.

Combat is Combat

Well paced and quality storytelling of US Marines in day to day combat operations in the Middle East. As a Marine Combat Veteran of the Vietnam War this was pretty familiar territory for me listening to tales of combat operations in the 21st Century. Situations and reactions of these modern Marines in Iraq could be interchanged with our combat operations in 1966 I Corps and on through to the Tet Offensive. The Marine Corps seems to not have changed much and that is heartening. The Esprit de Corps prides itself on the ability to meet combat objectives with the same basic skills that have not changed much "From the Halls of Montezuma to...." This book does an admirable job of conveying these events and especially the basic humanity of the men of so-called "Generation Kill".

Consider what our soldiers pay for freedom

This book reminded me of the sacrifice and honor our soldiers and veterans are in our lives as Americans. I think reading this made me a better person. And I’m grateful to the author for sharing his truths.

Echo in Ramadi

This book was one that I could not put down. It gave a detail look inside of what happened over there and what followed after. Emotional at times, tough to listen to at others, but I feel that Major Huesing did an outstanding job telling his and our story. Well done sir!

Personal, illustrative, and accessible

This candid story about real Marines in a real battle is told in a way that illustrates the Marines lives, the Marine Corps, the friction and fog of war, and the weight of command.
