Recommended read: House To House

Brad recommends the riveting House to House: An Epic Memoir of War by David Bellavia. Bellavia was recently upgraded to receive the Medal of Honor and is the first living Iraq War veteran to do so. This older memoir (2007) details the Second Battle of Fallujah. As a war and history buff, Brad found this compelling because of its first-person narrative, that wasn’t self-aggrandizing, calling it “one of the better-written accounts of the Irag War I’ve read.”
