“Into the Fire: A Firsthand Account of the Most Extraordinary Battle in the
Afghan War” will be available Sept. 25,
according to its listing on Amazon.com.
The 272-page book is written by
Meyer and Bing West, a Marine veteran who has authored several best-selling
works. It will be published by Random House, which also has it
listed on its website.

battle rattle with an Afghan landscape behind him. The work is described this

The numbers of individuals saved and killed were
later called into question in a report by McClatchy journalist Jonathan
Landay, who was embedded with the unit ambushed that day. It seems likely that
the publication of this book would seek to set the record straight.
We’ll be paying close attention to the details in the book here at Marine
Corps Times. Since 2009, we’ve published four cover stories heavily influenced
by the Battle of Ganjgal.
