Editorial Reviews


''Where most Afghanistan and Iraq memoirists chronicle either the grueling daytime slog of counterinsurgent infantrymen or the nighttime first-person-shooter war of counterterrorist commandos, Ray McPadden writes compellingly and candidly of his experience as a young battlefield leader in the thick of both. Covering the exhaustion of a marathon sixteen-month deployment to Afghanistan's rugged east, the thrills of shorter, sprint-like tours with the night-raiding 75th Ranger Regiment, and the guilt and weirdness of life in between, We March at Midnight offers an invaluable account of such key events at the height of America's post-9/11 misadventures as the 10th Mountain Division's plunge into the infamous Korengal valley and the Rangers' secret hunt for Iranian-backed bombmakers during the Iraq surge.'' --Wesley Morgan, author of The Hardest Place: The American Military Adrift in Afghanistan's Pech Valley

We March at Midnight is the finest, fiercest account from our recent wars. Bone-clean writing, the author's ability to capture men or mountains in a phrase, and his rare gift for rendering combat's confusion clearly serve a uniquely frank account of post-modern (and eternally primitive) war at the torn-flesh level. Far from the crybaby military memoirs ever in vogue, this book presents the fear and the losses but also the exhilaration of the days that count as wins -- with the enemy lying dead and comrades unscathed. Above all, this is an honest book from a soldier who has chosen to hide nothing. At his best, McPadden is Hemingway without the bullsh*t.'' --Ralph Peters, author of Beyond Terror and Cain at Gettysburg

''Ray McPadden can write. His first novel was named best military novel in 2019. Now he follows it with a combat memoir,
We March at Midnight, that should be required reading for every deploying platoon leader. McFadden's writing is sparse, punchy, and aggressive. He nails the essence of American infantrymen. They are not seeking to understand what brought them to Afghanistan's endless valleys and Iraq's endless deserts. They are seeking the enemy. McFadden is unapologetic and unromantic in his depiction of modern combat. The result is a fast-paced account of combat from the point of view of both traditional Army infantry and special operations forces that captures the essence of the few young men that volunteer to fight for us, over and over.'' --Owen West, former assistant secretary of defense, special operations
