THE SHERIFF OF RAMADI: NAVY SEALS AND THE WINNING OF AL-ANBAR

Details

An unrecognised success story in the war against al-Qaeda. In this ground-breaking book bestselling author and former U.S. Navy SEAL Dick Couch reports on the actions of the SEAL Task Unit during the Battle of Ramadi in Iraq’s al-Anbar Province between 2005 and 2007. When he began his research the author thought he would be writing about the SEALs’ courage in the face of a losing cause. Instead he discovered a startling success story whose importance has gone unrecognised in the war against al-Qaeda. Couch argues that the lessons of Ramadi with SEALs fighting alongside regular forces in an urban war zone call for using this strategy more widely. One of the most significant military engagements in the global war against terrorism since 9/11 and the most sustained and vicious engagement ever fought by SEALs the Battle of Ramadi demonstrates both their code of brotherhood and ability to adapt in an urban battle space which Couch identifies as the keys to the SEALs’ success on the battlefield. The story of PO2 Michael Monsoor who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery during the battle is a compelling example of their extraordinary brotherhood. First published in hardcover in 2008 the book is now available in paperback for the first time.
