Editorial Reviews

Review

"Guardia's writing does justice to the exciting story ... This is ano-holds-barred account, told as truthfully as possible. ... Overall, it's gripping stuff." ~ History of War, July 2015

"...an engaging historical account of EagleTroop, 2nd Squadron, 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment's push into Kuwait as part ofOperation Desert Storm in February 1991. The author links together detailedaccounts of Eagle Troop's Battle of 73 Easting derived from personal interviewsand memoirs of soldiers from Eagle Troop to give a minute-by-minute account ofthe battle. This book is not an argumentative piece, nor does it try topersuade the reader to view events under a particular lens; it is simply a descriptionof events as told by the soldiers who lived through the United States' firstmajor tank battle since World War II. The author, Mike Guardia, is a veteran ofthe U.S. Army and served as an armor officer from 2008 to 2014...well writtenand informative given the first-hand accounts and level of detail derived onlyfrom extensive research and a willingness to provide accuracy in detail. Irecommend this book to casual readers interested in personal accounts of thebattle and to Army leaders interested in how this battle relates to the U.S.Army Operating Concept tenets and core competencies." ~Military Review, June 2016
