This is a great account of a group of five "brothers" and their time spent in Iraq. I have read and reread their story several times. If you like military accounts and the bond between friends, you will love this book. Worth lots more than 99 cents!!

This book succeeds as a story of a five-man sniper team in Iraq, but it is not a shoot-'em-up nor a more technical look at the art of sniping. It covers more of the mundane day-to-day life of the team.

The views presented by the author were not what I ever experienced in the military. Not all officers and staff NCO's were incompetent, power-hungry mini-Napoleons. Most I ever met were professional, competent individuals. And I never met group of Marines, sniper team or not, who exhibited such a disregard for military courtesy and demeanor. That is not to say that the author's sniper team was not rather disrespectful; I just never ran across anything like that during my time in service.

The constant demeaning of "pogues" got to be a little old. In the Marines, every man is a rifleman, and while the infantry might be top dog, I never experience the level of distaste for Marines in other MOS's. In Iraq, while many job specialties kept inside the wire more often, almost every Marine wanted to go outside of the wire, and they volunteered to do so. I know of one admin corporal who volunteered for numerous convoys until he was killed manning a machine gun in a truck turret.

The author was not a sniper himself. He was a SAW gunner, there to provide support to the actual snipers. As such, that may have contributed to the lack of technical detail I expected. However, as a member of the team, I would have expected a little more of the sniping and a little less of the hijinks in the book.

The author's brother was one of the members of the crew who put on the show "Jackass," and I could see much of that reflected in the author's view on his experiences.

I was a little hesitant to buy it but its worth more than the .99 cents. I think we are just beginning to see what will be a ton of true stories about our war in Iraq. There will be a ton of academics that will analyze everything but the key to really understanding any war is hearing from the men who fought it.

Not every combat soldier is Ernest Hemingway but I like that. Uncommon men sharing their lives and experiences in everyday language. Having been in the Military, he brings out alot of the 'chicken!@#$' that people pull making it more true to life than if he had been a lone hero saving the free world. I'm happy with my purchase and proud to have it as part of my collection on Marine Corps Snipers. -D.R. Tharp author of 'Task Force Intrepid' the Gold of Katanga

When I heard that this book was from a Jack@$$'S brother I figured it would be childish and boring, I was wrong. Raab tells this story with plenty of foot notes for even thoses who are not in the military understand what terms they use. The personal storys makes you feel like one of the squad members and feel there loss and wins. I first got this book when it first came out on there website and loved it, the videos and photos he has make you feel like your there in there boots. for 99C its a must buy. A former ranger friend of mine read it and loved it said it was all the terms and realism and the battles were a little unclear and fast as they should be. Over all buy the real one for home and the kindle for the go this is a book and author I would buy from again.

A pretty well written book. As I was in Iraq, I was very interested in reading this. They did some of the sniping, but they did most was patrolling. I am not down marking it for that, after all, you can only write about what you have done. It was very well written and at times I had really thought about things that I had gone through as well.

As a marine who was deployed to Iraq i really enjoyed reading this book. Author did a really good job not over doing it and kept it to the simple day to day task. Good story of friends who re enlist to be deployed to Iraq. Book keeps you interested all the way through making it a fast easy read and for the price you can't go wrong.

I could not get past the first couple of chapters. He got out of the Marines and then bitched about going back in. Any SNCO was worthless in his eyes. I couldn't' stand reading it. Lots of BS in this book. I did my time in the Marines- 20 years, and never had half the problems he had in his short time. I've been in that sand box a couple of time myself. Kudos for his service and time in combat.

I enjoyed this book as it gave a soldier's eye view of the conflict in Iraq. This is more of a day to day life as a grunt story as opposed to a beginning middle and end military mission read.

The author writes from the heart and has perspective that is often times profound and often hilarious.

Read this book if you want to get a glimpse of modern day desert infantry.
