Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A veteran of the special forces in Vietnam and of many years of notable writing on military subjects makes an eminently worthwhile contribution to the literature on the second war in Iraq. It’s the story of one company of the much-deployed U.S. Army 10th Mountain Division in the Triangle of Death south of Baghdad. Facing every weapon at the commands of the Iraqis, the company doggedly endured and often more than held its own, physically and mentally. Its most harrowing experience was an ambush that took out an Iraqi interpreter and seven soldiers, three of whom were reported missing, presumably seized by the enemy. Vivid in its portraits of the men of the modern army and particularly detailed in depicting the efforts made to preserve the sanity of much-tried soldiers facing the most dangerous kind of guerrilla resistance, this book will draw the patrons of any and all current affairs and military collections. --Roland Green

I hoped against reason that the book would be accurate or at a minimum, less embellished.

You will find yourself fully engrossed in the storyline as he follows the action through the experiences of the real life warriors who were there.

These were ordinary men with whom most of us could relate but who made heroic efforts because that was what was needed.

It saddens me to here all the negative reviews that Mr. Sasser receives for writing this book. To start, this book is not a historical book. There is a difference between writing a historical document or literature, (also know as a primary source) and telling a story! Secondly, to anyone that was in 4-31 during this tour. There is a page in this book that everyone should read and REMEMBER while reading this book. That page is page two. I was either there for everything that happened of I was briefed from our command group or NCO's that were closely tied to our Battalion staff about the events that took place through out the duration of this deployment. Yes, there are people that have embellished some of the stories. (and we know who they are) It is obvious to us that were in Delta Company and 4-31 that Mr. Sasser was not given correct accounts of what truly happened in some instances, which he accounts for on page two. Those that were in Delta Company know what happened, what went on, and no one can ever take that away from us. Instead of looking at all of the inaccuracies and the "glorification" of certain individuals, look at the great gesture that Mr. Sasser has given Delta Company. He tried to tell our story, a story that should be told. We as Polar Bears are the worst critics because we were there! Not many people can say they were a part of something that has a book written about it! Also, remember what our Battalion did as a whole! Remember all the men that gave the ultimate sacrifice and never mind the certain people that have given the author wrong accounts of what went on or portrayed themselves as prestigious leaders that made Delta Company work. Also remember that many of us that were a part of this tour had gotten out of the military when Mr.Read more ›

Author Charles W. Sasser has written many truly great books over the past decade including his award winning book "God in the Foxhole". However, his newest book "None Left Behind: The 10th Mountain Division And The Triangle Of Death" has all of them beat. It offers readers all of the emotions, action, death, fear, and courage, that one would get from any great thriller novel - but what hits you is that this is a true story of real people involved in a real war. The author delivers it in a package of prose and words that is readable, inspiring and entertaining. Well written and authentic by someone who has obviously worn the uniform proudly himself.

You will find yourself fully engrossed in the storyline as he follows the action through the experiences of the real life warriors who were there. The bottom line is that he truly loves and respects all these soldiers and it shows. His book honors all those of the 10th Mountain Division as well as those fighting the current war on terrorism.

This book has my fullest endorsement and recommendation.

I read this book in one day. The story carried itself, but I was interested because I served in another Brigade in the 10th Mountain Division. When the news came out of the DUSTWUN situation, it really got to us. I was in military intelligence, and we did what we could from back at Fort Drum to help, but it wasn't much, we were just too far away.

Leaving aside my personal interest in the story, the author captured the smells and sights and sounds of Iraq like he himself had spent several combat tours there. The call to prayer, the helicopters, the smell of dust mixed with sewage, the amazing sunsets. It took me right back there. I also loved his handle on the military slang, the constant joshing around and off-color commentary of ordinary Joes, and the privations the combat soldiers went through compared to us FOBbits who had first dibs at the PX, hot chow three times a day unless a mortar barrage kept us under cover, and AC pretty much as long as the generators were running (which was usually.)It really pissed me off when they wouldn't let the Infantry guys in from a patrol base into the PX or chow hall because they were sweaty, dirty, and God forbid, a bit bloody. The garrison style rules were a source of constant frustration for everyone. We wanted to get shirts made that said, "Don't you know there's a war on?" But the command would have squashed that pretty quickly so we didn't bother.

Great story, highly recommended. I know some of the guys that were in the unit took exception to some of it as being inaccurate. Since I wasn't there, I will take their word for it.

Good news is this very accurately details life for infantry soldiers beyond the wire.Most people don't know this and the news doesn't portray it at all.Bad news, the title is misleading. It is not about the 10th Mountain, 2d Brigade, or the 4th Battalion.Its really Delta Co. Since I had a relative in another company, I was disappointed.Maps and an outline of the overall picture would also be helpful.

This was an emotional book to read for sure. Sasser does a good job of painting a picture of the hell that Delta Company had to live through on a daily basis while in the triangle. He brought to life those brave soldiers in Delta and conveyed what they must have been thinking as their tour progressed.

It was hard to put this book down and I finished it in 2 days. I was "choked-up" several times while reading this book. The ending was very emotional. This is a hard but necessary read for anyone that wants to know what the soldier on the front line has to go through while in Iraq/Afghanistan.

I am not a soldier, but work with them on a daily basis. I was with 2BCT 10MTN and 4/31IN during this tour and remember exactly where I was at when I heard the news...one of those JFK or 9/11 deals where you will never forget what you were doing or who told you when you first heard it. Sasser's book helps ensure that no one ever forgets those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we might continue to enjoy our freedom.
