Ghosts of Fallujah
Ghosts of Fallujah
A first person account of the Second Battalion, Seventh Cavalry’s participation in the Second Battle of Fallujah, the largest single engagement of the Iraq War and the largest urban battle since Hue in 1968. A First Marine Division operation, it was spearheaded by one of the most famous Army units in history. Ghosts of Fallujah is a heartfelt and somber recount of the battle, the influence of history, personal leadership, and how that can change lives.
"In Ghosts of Fallujah, Coley Tyler brilliantly merges three story lines –(1) the joint operation between the United States Army and the Marines in the Second Battle of Fallujah, the largest single engagement of the Iraq War, with (2) the legacy of the fearless Second Battalion, Seventh Cavalry Regiment, the “Ghost” Battalion, with (3) lessons of dynamic leadership , with special emphasis on the teachings of one of the great leaders of the Vietnam War, General Hal Moore – into an outstanding work. This book is a MUST READ for anyone interested in military history or influential leadership." - Jim Lawrence, author of Reflections on LZ Albany: The Agony of Vietnam
"Coley Tyler describes the detailed fight 2-7 CAV had as the main effort for the 1st Marine Regiment in Fallujah during November 2004. The joint Army-Marine Corps units assembled for the fight epitomized all the very best in the American warrior and the teamwork displayed between Soldier and Marine in combat. Along the way he captures leadership lessons from his mentor, LtGen Hal Moore and his Battalion Commander in Fallujah as well as his own lessons gleaned on the battlefield. Ghosts of Fallujah is a riveting firsthand account of one of the toughest fights of the Iraq War." - LtGen Rich Natonski USMC (Ret) CG 1st MarDiv Operation Al Fajr
