For soldiers in the 101st Airborne Division, the road to Baghdad began with a midnight flight in late February 2003. For Rick Atkinson, who would spend two months covering the division for The Washington Post, the war in Iraq provided a unique opportunity to observe today's U.S. Army in combat. Central to the drama is Major General David H. Petraeus, as he teaches, goads, and leads his troops and subordinate commanders in several intense battles.… (mere)

He makes the details interesting. ( )

In my humble opinion Rick Atkinsons book is in the same league as Max Hastings' 'Going to wars'
This account is vivid and I felt enlightened in many levels after reading it. ( )

This book is exceedingly well written, by a Pulitzer Prize winning author. I love books that send me to the dictionary to look up words. It's a straightforward account of a journalist embedded with General Petraeus during the Iraq war. Fascinating, both for those who've never been to war and those who have. For me, this wasn't a book I couldn't put down. It's not a novel; it's an account of what happened, and a very good one. It brings new understanding of the problems and logistics encountered during war. If you sit home watching the war on TV and ask yourself why this and why that, why is this taking so long or why didn't they do that, you need to read this book. If you've been a soldier, this account is from a different perspective and will also give you insight. ( )

This is a gripping account by a first-rate war correspondent. He demonstrates the futility and thrills of war and the swift decline of American efforts in Iraq. In context, he reminds us of the chilling first bloody incident of soldiers killed by one of their own. An Islamist fragged officers and his brother soldiers as an American soldier who had converted to Islam. Rather than remaining an isolated incident the Fort Hood killings were to continue the despicable story of Islamism.

The book called: In The Company Of Soldiers, was however very interesting. It had very cool facts about how they survived through out the night, and even what they eat and drink in the harsh environmental seasons of the war. However, the reason i had dropped this book was because it was way above my reading level. Another reason why i had dropped: In The Company Of Soldiers was because it got very confusing at times. The reason why i chose this book was because i had read other books from the author (Rick Atkinson) and were a very good read for me. Another reason why i had chose the book to read was because i love reading about the army and combat fighting.
If you like reading combat fighting books with facts about the army, then you might like this book. Also, you do however, need a very good higher type of reading level. Another reason why you really have to get into this book to like it is if you understand chronicle books. That however, is another reason why i had to drop this book because i do not read those types of books and i do however get really confused at times on how they jump from people to people. ( )
