As the tragic events unfolded before his eyes, he suddenly realised that he could no longer remain a spectator in the face of this appalling atrocity. There and then he made a decision that was to affect the rest of his life- he drove to the nearest Military Recruitment Centre and enlisted in the US Marines. Aftersurviving months of constant mental and physical torture in the notoriouslytough Marine Boot Camp in San Diego, he joined the ranks of one of the mostelite branches of the United States military and two years later found himselfpatrolling the dangerous wastes of the western desert in war-torn Iraq. Throughout his deployment in Iraq, Dale kept a daily journal to give us an astonishing, true account of one mans fight in the frontline of Americas War on Terror. Told with brutal honesty, he gives us a unique and rare insight from an Irishman, fighting for a foreign military in a very foreign land.
