  • This book will take your breath away, break your heart, and leave you in awe

    President Bill Clinton
  • Raw, authentic, and above all, inspiring

    Admiral William H. McRaven, US Navy (Ret.)
  • Combat is hard to make sense of. Probably because, in many ways, it makes no sense. James Patterson and Matt Eversmann's unvarnished portrayal of soldiers is right on. Each of these stories of the personal experience of combat is unique, homespun, and honest. God bless them, one and all.

    Brigadier General Peter Dawkins, US Army (Ret.)
  • A vivid and authentic portrait of life in the modern military . . . Powerful. This edifying collection captures the highs and lows of the military experience.

    Publishers Weekly
  • Up close war is a tapestry of individual stories, as painfully raw, improbably funny, and completely human as the soldiers themselves. James Patterson and my former Ranger comrade Matt Eversmann, have brilliantly woven together an image that is as compelling as it is entertaining.

    Stanley A. McChrystal, General, US Army (Ret.)
