This is a gripping first-hand account of the battle at Fallujah and the Marines who lived and died fighting for control. Patrick O'Donnell was the first "embedded" author to go into combat in Iraq with his unit, fighting side-by-side with the men of the 1st Platoon. They were the first unit into Fallujah - considered the most important battle in the war in Iraq - where civilians were used as human shields, suicide bombers approached from any street corner, and insurgents, high on injected adrenaline, fought to the death. The Marines of the 1st (and Patrick O'Donnell with them) saw the worst of it; by the end of the battle only 14 of the original 49 were left standing. In "We Were One", O'Donnell captures not only the sights, sounds and smells of the battles, but the human drama of the young men from a close-knit platoon fighting and dying side-by-side.

Review:

H-Net
“Superbly captures the human dimension of war that is missing in so many books of this genre...An extremely powerful and personal volume that will dramatically impact both those who have experienced combat and those who have not.”American Author’s Association
"Memorable...An emotional read...Throughout the book important facts come to light that people need to know if they are to understand the ongoing war against world terrorism...The book leaves no doubt that the Marines fighting in Iraq today are as capable as any in history...A masterpiece. The author has done a remarkable job preserving the experiences of those he served with. The telling of their stories gives us all a much better understanding of the on going war in Iraq. I highly recommend this book.”Paper Wars, 10/08
“It was like reading Nolan’s House to House or Tonsetic’s Days of Valor again...The book was intense and personal.”
