Battle for Baqubah - Killing Our Way Out

Title; Battle for Baqubah - Killing Our Way Out
Author: Robert Colella
Genre: History
Reviewer: Ron Camarda

ISBN (links go to the MWSA Amazon store): 1469791080

The Battle for Baqubah: Killing Our Way Out is a firsthand account-and sometimes a minute-by-minute tale-of a raw, in-your-face street fight with Al Qaeda militants over a fifteen-month span in the volatile Diyala Province of Iraq. This story is presented through the eyes of a first sergeant serving with B Company 1-12 Cavalry (Bonecrushers), 1st Cavalry Division, out of Fort Hood, Texas.

The author takes the reader into the midst of the conflict in and around Baqubah-Iraq's "City of Death"-a campaign that lasted most of 2007. The author and his fellow Bonecrushers watched as the city went from sectarian fighting amongst the Shiite and Sunnis, to an all-out jihad against the undermanned and dangerously dispersed US forces within Baqubah and the outlying areas.

He sent a message to the world from North Vietnam, while answering a reporter's questions. After the war, Rear Admiral Denton received the Navy Cross-not for this message-but for his answer to the reporter's question: "What do you think about your government's actions?" Knowing he would be tortured more,Denton said, "...whatever the position of my government, I agree with it. I support it. I will support it as long as I live!" Years later, he continued this vow by becoming a congressman from Alabamain the United States Senate.
