Five months after being deployed to Iraq, Lima Company's 1st Platoon, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, found itself in Fallujah, embroiled in some of the most intense house-to-house, hand-to-hand urban combat since World War II. In the city's bloody streets, they came face-to-face with the enemy-radical insurgents high on adrenaline, fighting to a martyr's death, and suicide bombers approaching from every corner. Award-winning author and historian Patrick O'Donnell stood shoulder to shoulder with this modern band of brothers as they marched and fought through the streets of Fallujah, and he stayed with them as the casualties mounted.
Patrick K. O'Donnellis the author of three previous books, includingBeyond Valor, winner of the prestigious William E. Colby Award for Outstanding Military History. He lives in Arlington, Virginia.

Editorial Reviews

Lieutenant Jeff Sommers “We Were One captures every action, every thought, but most importantly every emotion that goes with victory, and the loss of friends in battle.”Sergeant James Conner “We Were One describes the hardships that our band of warriors endured as a family, and the sacrifices we were willing to make for each other when put to the ultimate test.”Corporal Bill Sojda “We Were One is a perfect, no-shit, first-hand story about a group of brave young boys, strangers to each other, molded into Marines, and the war that made us men. A unique bond made us brothers—we fought for each other to stay alive. Feel the heartache, the glory, and the agonizing pain of each Marine as we tell our story of the brutal bloody battle for Fallujah. It is war at its worst fought by young men at their finest.”New York Post “A real-time, eyewitness history …. The author’s most important accomplishment among many is to put a human face on the troops who are fighting against some of the fiercest enemies America has ever encountered …. Read O’Donnell’s excellent book and you will know that they are indeed, as were each preceding generation, “The Greatest.”Marine Corps Times, Air Force Times, Navy Times, and
