Aware of U. So heavy were the casualties that the Secretary of Defense offered to pull the Marines out.

Instead, they pushed forward. Each Marine in 3rd Platoon patrolled two and a half miles a day for six months-a total of one million steps-in search of a ghostlike enemy that struck without warning.

Why did the Marines attack and attack, day after day? Every day brought a new skirmish. Each footfall might trigger an IED. Half the Marines in 3rd Platoon didn't make it intact to the end of the tour. One Million Steps is the story of the fifty brave men who faced these grim odds and refused to back down.

Publisher Description

Based on Bing West's embeds with 3rd Platoon, as well as on their handwritten log, this is a gripping grunt's-eye view of life on the front lines of America's longest war. Writing with a combat veteran's compassion for the fallen, West also offers a damning critique of the higher-ups who expected our warriors to act as nation-builders-and whose failed strategy put American lives at unnecessary risk.

Each time a leader was struck down, another rose up to take his place.
