One Bullet Away by Nathaniel Fick
Book DescriptionIf the Marines are the few, the proud, Recon Marines are the fewest and the proudest. Nathaniel Fick s career begins with a hellish summer at Quantico, after his junior year at Dartmouth. He leads a platoon in Afghanistan just after 9/11 and advances to the pinnacleRecon two years later, on the eve of war with Iraq. His vast skill set puts him in front of the front lines, leading twenty-two Marines into the deadliest conflict since Vietnam. He vows to bring all his men home safely, and to do so he ll need more than his top-flight education. Fick unveils the process that makes Marine officers such legendary leaders and shares his hard-won insights into the differences between military ideals and military practice, which can mock those ideals. In this deeply thoughtful account of what it s like to fight on today s front lines, Fick reveals the crushing pressure on young leaders in combat. Split-second decisions might have national consequences or horrible immediate repercussions, but hesitation isn t an option. One Bullet Away never shrinks from blunt truths, but ultimately it is an inspiring account of mastering the art of war."
