Mission accomplished…anyone care?

Gabriel Ledeen served two tours in Iraq with the 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment. He is now studying at Stanford Law School. He writes to ask his friends to “read this article, written by decorated combat veteran and author David Bellavia. It is an almost perfect expression of what it feels like to be a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom (now concluded), trying to assimilate back into a society that doesn’t understand what our war was and is.” Readers may know Bellavia by House to House, his account of the Battle of Fallujah as seen through the eyes of an infantryman who was there and who played a heroic role in it.
JOHN adds: House to House is one of the most riveting books, and maybe the best book about warfare, I’ve read. If you haven’t read it, you should.
