A soldier's story from Iraq

Patrol in Ramadi, Iraq, is more than edgy – it is terrifying when you are a US Marine in early 2004. Author Donovan Campbell, commander of a forty-man infantry platoon, carries the reader on patrol and shares his soul, including the terror of making split-second decisions that determine life and death for his men and the civilian population – the successes and the failures. 

If you are looking for a book that makes sense out of the Iraq war or even one that will give you hope that what the US is doing in Iraq is for the better of mankind – I don’t recommend Joker One. 

If you want to feel what it is like to be a solider facing death or dismemberment any second for weeks on end, Joker One will do just that and more. 

Sleep well and with a thankful heart; the US Marines are bleeding for you.
