Summary:
This is the true story of the Marine lieutenant who, having fought for his country in the first Gulf War, went on to professional success in finance, only to be compelled to reenlist in the wake of 9/11. Leaving behind an ex-model wife and two children, he served once again in Iraq--and was charged by the U.S. military with murder. On a raid in the Sunni hotbed of the Al Anbar province, Lieutenant Pantano shot and killed two Iraqi insurgents. Months later, while successfully leading Marines during the explosive surge in terrorist activity, one of his own men disputed his self-defense claim in the Al Anbar shootings. Pantano was relieved of his command and charged with premeditated murder, a crime punishable by death. In the face of a widely publicized military hearing, Pantano's family "attacked into the ambush, " launching a Defend-the-Defenders campaign that was met with overwhelming support nationwide.--From publisher description.
