Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Jeff served as a logistics officer in the United States Marine Corps from 2008 to 2014. After a brief period in industry, he joined the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota as a PhD student in Information and Decision Sciences.


"The book is recommended reading for all who want to understand the fight for Helmand Province in its entirety." - Gen James T. Conway, USMC (Ret), 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps

"Finally, a readable, honest and gritty account of the dangerous, exhausting labor that keeps 'The Green Machine' going. There is no 'rear echelon;' there are only Marines. Without platoons like the one Clement describes, our ground forces could not function." - Bing West, bestselling author of The Village and No True Glory

"[K]ey lessons that can be taken from this excellent book are applicable to a myriad of other professions...Jeff Clement wrote an interesting and honest account of his failure and victories, I hope we can all learn from it." Huffington Post

 "Jeff Clement has written a superb account of a young Marine officer's day-to-day life in the complex combat environment of today's conflicts."Gen Anthony C. Zinni USMC (Ret), former CENTCOM Commander and author of The Battle for Peace

"One of the best war memoirs I've ever read . . . a moving, inspiring work, that's enjoyable as hell, as well." Stan R. Mitchell, author of Hill 406 --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
