9781400114085: An Angel from Hell: Real Life on the Front Lines

Ryan A. Conklin enlisted in the U.S. Army at age seventeen, following 9/11, and joined Angel Company. As a turret gunner with the famed 101st Airborne "Screaming Eagles" and a member of the famed "Rakkasans" regiment-the most decorated regiment in the U.S. Army-he endured hellish conditions in the war-torn city of Tikrit, Iraq. After he returned to the States, he became a cast member on The Real World: Brooklyn in 2008. That came to an end when he received his notice recalling him to duty. An Angel from Hell is a gritty, blunt, and laugh-out-loud funny war memoir from the grunt's perspective. Conklin reveals what the Iraq war is really like, day to day-the misery, the boredom, the absurdity, the horror, and even the moments of grace. With stunning candor and wisdom beyond his years, Conklin has documented a complex and unavoidably life-changing experience for his generation.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for "An Angel From Hell"

"This war memoir is different from any other. It is as real as it gets. Ryan A. Conklin has written a brutally honest, exciting, and heartfelt account of life as a turret gunner during the year of the most intense combat in Iraq. Conklin brings the reader as close as you can get to combat without walking into a recruiter's office. An Angel From Hell is a gripping story of patriotism, camaraderie and sacrifice . . . More than anyone else in America, Conklin has become the face of the Iraq War veteran. If you care about your country, get this book."

- Paul Rieckhoff, founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and author of Chasing Ghosts

"Just as Generation Kill shows the unvarnished truth of the Iraq invasion, An Angel from Hell portrays the grim reality of Iraq's condition during the 2005-06 horror years in Tikrit. A candid, humorous, and tragic memoir from a genuine American soldier about 'the real world' of war."

- David J. Danelo, author of Blood Stripes: The Grunt's View of the War in Iraq
