Echo in Ramadi: The Firsthand Story of US Marines in Iraq's Deadliest City by Scott A. Huesing

"In war, destruction is everywhere. It eats everything around you. Sometimes it eats at you." —Major Scott Huesing, Echo Company Commander

From the winter of 2006 through the spring of 2007, two-hundred-fifty Marines from Echo Company, Second Battalion, Fourth Marine Regiment fought daily in the dangerous, dense city streets of Ramadi, Iraq during the Multi-National Forces Surge ordered by President George W. Bush. The Marines' mission: to kill or capture anti-Iraqi forces. Their experience: like being in Hell.


Now Major Scott A. Huesing, the commander who led Echo Company through Ramadi, takes readers back to the streets of Ramadi in a visceral, gripping portrayal of modern urban combat. Bound together by brotherhood, honor, and the horror they faced, Echo's Marines battled day-to-day on the frontline of a totally different kind of war, without rules, built on chaos. In Echo in Ramadi , Huesing brings these resilient, resolute young men to life and shows how the savagery of urban combat left indelible scars on their bodies, psyches, and souls. Like war classics We Were Soldiers , The Yellow Birds , and Generation Kill , Echo in Ramadi is an unforgettable capsule of one company's experience of war that will leave readers stunned.

Editorial Reviews

"Wow! One of the very best books to come out this war. A powerful and gripping narrative that gives the reader an insight into the combat that our warriors have experienced, across two decades of war. Finally, this book provides a deep and infinitely valuable insight for anyone who would strive to understand the “echoes" that resonate with all who serve."
Lt. Col. Dave Grossman (ret.), author of On Killing and On Combat.

"A book sogripping it will be read by a generation of grunts and leaders, vividly depicting how, in crisis after crisis, mutual trust pulls a unit, or business, through hard times. No preaching–no pulled punches. A rock-solid description of grit and perseverance at its best."
Bing West, bestselling author of ten books on combat, Vietnam veteran, and former Assistant Secreatry of Defense for International Security Affairs under President Ronald Reagan

“Demonstrates the nature of war and how the special spirit that Marines bring to the fight is virtually eternal. A fine, gripping look at what war is all about for a new generation of warriors.”
Dale Dye, USMC (Ret), American actor and author, decorated Vietnam veteran, and owner of Warriors, Inc.

“An amazing tribute that provides insight into what I never saw of my brother’s valor—a raw glimpse of how my pain was the Marines’ pain too—this book must be read and shared.”
Christopher Libby, Gold Star brother of Corporal Dustin J. Libby, Killed in Action December 6, 2006, Ramadi, Iraq

“Scott Huesing and the ‘Magnificent Bastards’ he led in Iraq know the true face of war. Echo in Ramadi is a raw, firsthand account of how they persevered against harrowing odds in what was once the bloodiest place on earth. It’s also an inspiring chronicle of unwavering courage, remarkable compassion, and steadfast commitment. The respect and devotion Huesing has for his Marines is apparent on every page. If you, or a loved one you know, ever served in harm’s way, Echo in Ramadi is an essential ‘must read!’”
—Oliver North, LtCol, USMC (Ret), host of War Stories on Fox News Channel, #1 bestselling author, and has been embedded with more than sixty U.S. and allied military units since 9-11-01—including 2d Battalion, 4th Marines, the “Magnificent Bastards”
