The story of the Marines in Charlie Battery, 1st Bn, 10th Marines as they deploy, train, fight, and win the battle of An-Nasiriyah

Charlie Battery:
A Marine Artillery Unit in Iraq
 

is the harrowing and personal account of a Marine Corps artillery unit fight for survival in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Andrew is the father of one of the Charlie Battery Marines, and the book follows his son, Cpl Philip Lubin, USMC, and his fellow Marines as they suddenly deploy for war, train and prepare for battle, and then fight in the vicious battle of An-Nasiriyah.

Through revealing interviews with both the Marines, their commanding officers, and their parents, families, and girlfriends, the book provides a rare glimpse into what the early days of the war was like - not only for the Marines, but also for their families and loved ones who were sitting home watching it unfold live on CNN and MSNBC.

Excerpt
From Chapter 6
The Battle of An-Nasiriyah:

North of Jalibah Airfield, 22 March 2003
"It was a hip shot, and a Red Rain mission," said LCPL Nick Lamb. "We'd practiced it a thousand times, and we knew exactly what to do.

Phil, as the Recorder on Gun 1, took the firing order from Lamb, and bellowed it to his fellow Marines on the gun crew. "Battery...2 rounds... when ready...charge 6...white...lot Delta Whiskey...shell ICM...fuse VT...time 12..."

With these simple commands, practiced by the hour in the cold and rain at Fort Sill, and the dust and wind of the Udairi Training Range, Phil and his fellow Marines in Charlie Battery went to war."

23 March, 2003
"With a call sign of "Nightmare," which was indicative of what they were about to inflict on the Iraqi's, LtCol Starnes' s artillery batteries - made up of young Marines like Phil, Justin Noyes, Rob Kranz, and others in their first battle - began to demonstrate their expertise that morning. "We didn't stop firing," Phil said later." It seemed that we shot mission nonstop, and that we didn't let up the whole day."


An Essential Addition...
"Charlie Battery" - "An essential addition to the book shelf of any young marine or those who would understand them. A gripping ground-level account that illuminates the boots-on-the-ground and their pivotal role in the taking of Iraq."

Kathy Roth-Douquet: Co-Author of "AWOL; The Unexcused Absence of America's Upper Classes from Military Service


The Best Marine Story from Iraq!
"This is the best story of the Marines in Iraq !"
