"RAMADI: DECLASSIFIED
A Roadmap to Peace in the Most Dangerous City in Iraq"

…It became clear to me that killing the enemy was not going to accomplish our mission.
Killing terrorists was necessary and I must admit extremely gratifying, but it was not
always particularly helpful. Frankly, capturing them led to more intelligence, which led
to the capture of more of the enemy, whereas killing terrorists was the end of the line.”

6 Nuts in a Nutshell: Ramadi Declassified: A Book Review

--Cat



"Colonel Tony Deane has written an intense first person account of the pivotal battle of the Iraq War, the Battle of Ramadi.
He lays out in gripping detail how Al Qaeda was able to take control of western Iraq by the summer of 2006, and the steps that
coalition forces took to wrest back the city, and the population, from the terrorist.

At a time that many considered Iraq lost, Deane commanded an armored battalion task force that found themselves in an around-the-clock
street fight in the most dangerous city in Iraq, while simultaneously reaching out to tribal leaders to form an Iraqi political movement
that swept across the country and changed the course of the war.

A history book that reads like a thriller -- and a must read for military leaders and diplomats that find themselves embroiled in a counterinsurgency."

--General Barry McCaffrey, USA (Retired)



Tony Deane has written the best account to date of what it means to be a combat leader on today's battlefield.
His account of leading a battalion in the thick of things in Ramadi takes readers right onto the city's main streets,
providing a fascinating account of how U.S. forces helped turn the tide of war in Iraq.
His writing is sharp and visceral, providing a fast-paced narrative that is hard to put down.

-- Jim Michaels, Author of A Chance in Hell: the men who triumphed over Iraq's deadliest city and turned the tide of war



As a highly courageous combat leader and skilled military diplomat, Tony Deane was a critical player in an epic turning point of the Iraq War.
The urgent insights and lessons in this book, which reads like a great thriller, must be required reading for all American military and political leaders,
as well as all citizens who want to know how the United States can again lead the free world and our allies to victory in the new global era.

-- William Doyle Author, A Soldiers Dream: Captain Travis Patriquin and the Awakening of Iraq and PT 109: An American Epic of War, Survival and the Destiny of John F. Kennedy

Col. Deane's work stays low and moves fast through the people and events who turned America's involvement in Iraq from bitter urban fighting into the Anbar Awakening, and later The Surge.
A must read for policy makers and those seeking paths to peace with the people's of the fertile crescent.
