Genre: Nonfiction memoir
Rating: 4 ½ stars
Into the fire is the first hand account of Meyer’s time in the middle with his unit. Into the fire also tells about how he went back in to a fire zone in order to bring back his fallen brothers. Dakota goes on to say that they only regret he had was that he could not bring them back alive. As a Marine he chose not to leave any man behind.
The memoir was a very informative read, but Into the Fire was also a sad read. However you got to see that in a combat zone the man in your unit become like your brothers.
Into the Fire was a good read however I would say that it is for adult readers because there are scenes that are graphic.
