Justifiably, this book is about the good, the bad, and the ugliness of the Iraq war effort. Part One of this exciting read gives the reader a unique insight into the enthusiasm, conduct, and folly of my unit, and the actors within it as we were about to be inserted into the Iraqi war exertion. This account of the urban conflict brings you into the military realm of preparations for hostilities, the receipt of deployment orders, and the multiple instances of dealing with the three main opposing characters of the war, along with other opportunist actors: the insurgents, the crooked Iraqi council members, and the scrupulous and unscrupulous fellow soldiers. When you are done with Part One, I guarantee that you will not be able to put this book aside.
Part Two divulges the excellence of America's braves, the ghastly along with the unattractiveness of the conflict, as I work for a contractor in the pit of the manmade hell (from the bird's-eye view of a former American brave who followed the money right into the epicenter of tyranny and death). Here's a word of warning to tender-hearted readers: The revelations in this read may upset the best of us; furthermore, if kidnappings, deceitfulness, indenturing, killings, and even an unexplained American's death is not your cup of tea, I kindly advise you to move on to something you can handle.
This book is all about my experiences during the Iraqi urban conflict, and I, your humble raconteur, did not have to conger up anything. Apologetically, I proclaim that this is not a book about how I saved my buddies. This read is about the good things we did along with the vices encountered within the twenty or so months I aided the Iraqi war effort as a soldier, and later as I work for a contractor in and around the killing slums of Iraq. As you read, it is left up to you to determine what circumstances are corrupt, what appears to be circumspect, or the results of incompetence. Let the reader be the judge. I absolutely guarantee that you will gasp at something in this book as you pursue my account of the war.

Mr. Dyer is a native of Antigua, a beach-laden island in the beautiful Caribbean Sea. He migrated to the United States (US) Virgin Islands during the seventies with his mother. After completing high school, he was distant to become a commercial aircraft pilot. Upon completing his private pilot license, however, he was well out of cash and, as a result, capitalized on his mother's advice to enlist in the United States military. He relished the professionalism of the force and served in the nation's army for more than twenty-two years. Committed to higher learning, Mr. Dyer aggressively pursued the military's education program and successfully completed a bachelor's degree in business administration. At the writing of this book, he was well on his way to a master's degree in international business and technology. His motivation in this account is to enlighten the ill-informed American public about its war efforts in the Iraqi theater of operation.
