Críticas:

"[A]beautiful and harrowing debut...Campbell unspools blow-by-blow accounts of his unit's patrols from street level. The fuzzy radio transmissions, the roadside bombs laid by faceless enemies, the dust-filled, hand-trembling confusion - it all comes dizzyingly alive.....By the time the platoon finally returns home, exhausted, scarred, and with fewer men than they set out with, Campbell's admiration for his men has become contagious. It's only then that you realize that""Joker One isn't as much a story of war as it is a story of love. A"--"Entertainment Weekly ""Donovan Campbell, first as a Marine and then as a writer, shows us that the dominant emotion in war isn't hatred or anger or fear. It's love. His story stands as a poignant tribute to his men-their courage, their dedication, their skill, and their love for one another, even unto death. This is a deeply moving book."--Nathaniel Fick, author of "One Bullet Away: The Making of a Marine Officer ""The arrangement known as embedding-the almost complete immersion in the movements and life of a military unit....is seldom available to nonjournalists. But [Joker One] is its literary equivalent....[Joker One] should be read by all those who have ever wondered what conclusions they would have drawn about the Iraq war if they had been dropped into the middle of the conflict."--"New York Times Book Review ""Nobody but a soldier knows what war is really like, but the next best thing may be reading Donovan Campbell's Joker One."--Star-Telegram, Ft. Worth "Takes you into the heart of combat and into the soul of a young Marine lieutenant....Beyond the colorfully described chaotic battle scenes, beyond the noble warriors who populate the book, what sets Joker One apart is its unsparing honesty."--"Journal-Sentinel, "Milwaukee "Joker One is the real goods, what Hemingway called 'the true gen.' The classic military story: one platoon leader, the men of his platoon, and the impossibility and>

Reseña del editor:

After graduating from Princeton, Donovan Campbell wanted to give back to his country, engage in the world, and learn to lead. So he joined the service, becoming a commander of a forty-man infantry platoon called Joker One. Campbell had just months to train and transform a ragtag group of brand-new Marines into a first-rate cohesive fighting unit, men who would become his family. They were assigned to Ramadi, the capital of the Sunni-dominated Anbar province that was an explosion just waiting to happen. And when it did happen--with the chilling cries of "Jihad, Jihad, Jihad!" echoing from minaret to minaret--Campbell and company were there to protect the innocent, battle the insurgents, and pick up the pieces. Thrillingly told by the man who led the unit of hard-pressed Marines, Joker One is a gripping tale of a leadership and loyalty.

Descripción Presidio Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 236 x 168 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. After graduating from Princeton, Donovan Campbell joined the service, realising that becoming a Marine officer would allow him to give back to his country, engage in the world, and learn to lead. In this immediate, thrilling, and inspiring memoir, Campbell recounts a timeless and transcendent tale of brotherhood, courage, and sacrifice. As commander of a forty-man infantry platoon called Joker One , Campbell had just months to train and transform a ragtag group of brand-new Marines into a first-rate cohesive fighting unit, men who would become his family: Sergeant Leza, the house intellectual who read Che Guevara; Sergeant Mariano Noriel, the Filipino ball of fire who would become Campbell s closest confidant and friend; Lance Corporal William Feldmeir, a narcoleptic who fell asleep during battle; and a lieutenant known simply as the Ox, whose stubborn aggressiveness would be more curse than blessing. Campbell and his men were assigned to Ramadi, that capital of the Sunni-dominated Anbar province that was an explosion just waiting to happen. And when it did happen-with the chilling cries of Jihad, Jihad, Jihad! echoing from minaret to minaret-Campbell and company were there to protect the innocent, battle the insurgents, and pick up the pieces.After seven months of day-to-day, house-to-house combat, nearly half of Campbell s platoon had been wounded, a casualty rate that went beyond that of any Marine or Army unit since Vietnam. Yet unlike Fallujah, Ramadi never fell to the enemy. Told by the man who led the unit of hard-pressed Marines, Joker One is a gripping tale of a leadership, loyalty, faith, and camaraderie throughout the best and worst of times.
