In this raw and provocative new book, readers wear desert camouflage, climb to rooftops, and get behind the rifle with a platoon of elite Marine snipers and scouts in Iraq.

Author Mike Tucker embedded with the unit for its entire combat tour in 2005 06 to tell this exclusive from-the-frontlines story.

Ronin captures true-grit Marines at war as they reconnoiter Iraqi villages, track terrorist targets, grapple with unrealistic rules of engagement, and get the kill.

It also contains the only firsthand accounts of such previously unreported actions as an Al Qaeda attack on a police station and the winter of the sniper when terrorist gunmen plagued Coalition forces in Fallujah.
