“An unflinching look at war from the inside—its triumphs, its costs, its relentlessness. Gilbertson captures the faces of the men and women in our military who have died fighting, the faces of fearful civilians, and the ruthless wilderness of urban combat. This is the best book of photographs to come out of the Iraq war, bar none. It is also one of the most powerful books ever published about the experience of American soldiers and Marines in battle.”
General Tony Zinni, United States Marine Corps (Ret.)

“Gilbertson’s book … will break your heart while it opens your eyes. [His] photographs show violence and blood and desperation and panic; he captures American soldiers as they do their best in an impossibly complex situation, as well as the Iraqis who are caught in the crossfire.”
Julia Keller, Chicago Tribune
