The Warriors of Anbar: The Marines Who Crushed Al Qaeda--the Greatest Untold Story of the Iraq War

Availability: Ready to download

A riveting, edge-of-your seat account of how a battalion of Marines faced off against the most brutal of Al Qaeda at its most desperate and vicious moment--and how the Marines decisively crushed the terrorists When the 2nd Battalion of the 3rd Marine Regiment ("2/3") arrived in the little-known "Haditha Triad" region of western Iraq's Al Anbar Province in September of 2 A riveting, edge-of-your seat account of how a battalion of Marines faced off against the most brutal of Al Qaeda at its most desperate and vicious moment--and how the Marines decisively crushed the terrorists When the 2nd Battalion of the 3rd Marine Regiment ("2/3") arrived in the little-known "Haditha Triad" region of western Iraq's Al Anbar Province in September of 2006, the region exploded in a storm of terrorist violence. The most battle-hardened of Al Qaeda had fled to the Triad, and, taking their last, desperate gasps for survival after years of bloody war, lashed out at the battalion with everything they could muster. The Marines sent into this firestorm of violence immediately lunged into a complex, double-edged mission: crush Al Qaeda and help the locals rebuild their terrorist-smashed lives and homes. After months of grueling, fearsome battle--and the loss of twenty-three of their ranks--the warriors of 2/3 stood tall in victory. This is their incredible story. Warriors of Anbar is one of the greatest untold stories of modern war, one of grit, incredible courage, and utmost sacrifice. It is a story that illustrates the U.S. Marine Corps at its very finest.

    Against overwhelming odds, including prohibitions about engaging the enemy due to politics back home, the Marines defeated Al Qaeda in the Triad of Anbar Province in Iraq in 2006-7. An unbelievable story of immense dedication and sacrifice. When you read about how our Marines genuinely cared about the local population and see the things they did to protect the civilians, this will generate a proud feeling in the bottom of your gut, whether you support U.S. involvement in this conflict or not. 2n Against overwhelming odds, including prohibitions about engaging the enemy due to politics back home, the Marines defeated Al Qaeda in the Triad of Anbar Province in Iraq in 2006-7.

When you read about how our Marines genuinely cared about the local population and see the things they did to protect the civilians, this will generate a proud feeling in the bottom of your gut, whether you support U.S. involvement in this conflict or not. 2nd Battalion of the 3rd Marine regiment are heroes. They are an epic example of our military standing for those who could not stand on their own. In this age we live in, too many forget that despite this country's imperfections, it is a beacon of hope to many vulnerable people of the world. This is an epic recounting of the Marine efforts to create "enduring freedom" for the people of Haditha and the surrounding areas of the Triad as Al Qaeda made its last stand to extinguish such. The story comes to us from Mr. Ed Darack who embedded with the Marines and witnessed most of what he describes. Thank you, Mr. Darack, for telling this story because without such, no one would know The Cost and The Reward of the Marine endeavors.

    Five stars for the men and women involved in this heartbreaking but ultimately rewarding story. Deduct one star for the writer's attempt at 'action' BOOM, CRASH, CRASH, BOOM which totally distracted from the intense personal conflict taking place. A good writer would have been able to seamlessly describe the incoming fire, the explosions of the IED's without resorting to cartoon language. That said, the story regarding this area of the conflict, the impact on American and Iraqi lives, the arc of Five stars for the men and women involved in this heartbreaking but ultimately rewarding story.

And I cannot honor the men and women who served there with enough accolades. They were/are heroes.

    Short but powerful. Ed does a really good job of conveying the true nature of the conflict in Iraq through an infantry battalion and their relationship with the local populace. I served in 2/3 years after the time period in the book, but it's cool to know what my predecessors achieved and where I came from. Also... Mackie hall is the shit.
