Publisher's Summary

What would the war do without me?

We March at Midnight is award-winning author Ray McPadden’s chronicle of his experience as a highly decorated Ranger officer leading some of the most dangerous missions during the height of the Iraq and Afghan wars. In 2005, Ray joined the army in search of what he calls “the moment” - a chance to prove to himself and his brothers in arms that he is a true leader. His job is to establish the first outpost in the Korengal, Afghanistan’s deadliest valley, and his decisions and mistakes will have a permanent impact on the men he commands. During the 15-month tour, his unit receives numerous decorations for valor while suffering nearly 50 percent casualties, ultimately accomplishing their mission in a land considered unwinnable. 

Prowess with a rifle platoon soon earns Ray a position in the world’s premiere raiding force, the 75th Ranger Regiment, an accomplishment earned by less than one percent of the officers in the US Army, and during the most combat-heavy period of the 21st century. Ray spearheads the first joint-strike force of Army Rangers and Navy SEALs, in a shadow war against the agents of a foreign government, where lightning raids by helicopter, armored vehicle, and foot are his nightly routine. 

In 2009, when Ray returns to the same corner of Afghanistan where his military career began, he suddenly finds himself tasked with leading Rangers against a target he knows all too well: the home of friends from his first tour. As he leads one last raid, Ray is at war with himself. Conquering this unexpected enemy proves the greatest challenge of all. 

We March at Midnight is a blood-spattered tour de force of growing up, leadership, the nature of war, and its aftermath.

Raw and honest view into the GWOT Infantryman.

I've read hundreds of books on war. It was biographies like this that about Vietnam and WW2 that led me to joining the Airborne Infantry and leading an existing strikingly similar to the authors. He is one of the few that have told the story with the black humor prevalent in a world of war without spoiling the story by trying to hard....

I dont think it makes my top 5 but it is certainly in the top dozen and certainly worth the time....

Great listen,

What a great book. These soldiers are true patriots. The worst part is hearing what happens to them when they return.
