Summary
  • "In this book, former U.S. Navy SEAL Dick Couch reports on the actions of the SEAL Task Unit during the Battle of Ramadi in Iraq's al-Anbar Province between 2005 and 2007. Couch details the previously unrecognized importance of the SEALs in winning the fight to control Ramadi. Calling the Battle of Ramadi one of the most significant military entanglements in the global war against terrorism since 9/11 and the most sustained and vicious engagement ever fought by SEALs, he describes the success of special operations forces and Navy SEALs fighting side by side with conventional forces. Couch identifies the SEALs' ability to adapt and evolve in this deadly urban battle space and their code of brotherhood is the story of PO2 Michael A
  • Monsoor, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery during the Battle of Ramadi. The Battle of Ramadi was a battle won with a strategy of deploying Navy SEALs alongside regular forces in a joint operation to fight a major battle against terrorists in the urban war zone of Ramadi. Based on this success story, Couch argues that the lessons of Ramadi call for using this strategy more widely to win the ongoing war against al-Qaeda and their allies."--Jacket
