dakota-meyer-book21One of the podcasts that I listen to frequently is The Jocko Podcast, hosted by Jocko Willink a former Navy SEAL. Back in episode 115 he spoke with Dakota Meyer, a recipient of the Medal of Honour. In their conversation they talked about the battle and situations that led to the medal, and used Meyer’s book Into the Fire as a guide for the conversation.

It was a riveting discussion and I was pleased to find that my local library had a copy of the book. I scooped it up and ploughed through it in less than a week. It is a real pager-turner and I found my nose stuck in it for hours at a time. Meyer writes in a frank and open manner and skillfully describes the battle and what happened in his life afterward.

The battle in question involves a small mountaintop village from which Meyer’s team was ambushed. A combination of opponents using the rules of engagement against them, rear echelon red tape, and the fog of war led to the death of many soldiers. Meyer was initially posted outside the battle zone, but things got to such a bad point that he went against direction and went into the fray to rescue his fellow marines and ANA soldiers.

Several things stand out about this book; there is not a lot of preamble, Meyer briefly goes over his upbringing, but only in enough detail to allow us to know that he was brought up with high expectations and a solid work ethic (many books spend wayyy too much time on the pre-event stories). Secondly, his description of the battle brings its intensity to the fore. Whether he is conveying the helplessness of hearing his friends over the radio getting cut down, deciding with his mate to go in, or in the thick of the action, you feel like you are right there with him. Then to close, the effects these events had on his life are told in such a raw and open way that you can’t help but be moved by what it must be like to lose your friends and end up sitting in a carpark late at night with your gun against your head.

It’s a full on read, but well worth it. It is to the point and will suck you in. Check it out.
