In this "gripping tale of a man and his crew mates preparing to go to war" (A. Davis), author Bacil Donovan Warren "brilliantly captures what is the rarely described gritty and demanding life of an armor crewman" (R. Schultheis).
In the summer of 1990, the US Army's 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment was at Fort Bliss, Texas, preparing for another rotation to the National Training Center. Their training took a sharp curve when Iraq invaded Kuwait, and the Regiment deployed into Saudi Arabia as a part of Operation Desert Shield.
With It or in It is the story of that deployment told by an M1A1 tank Loader with Cyclone Troop, 1st Squadron, 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment. Author Bacil Donovan Warren describes the shock, the highs, the lows, and the terror of deployment with candor and even maintains a sense of humor and hope. Follow along with the Regiment and the author as they deploy thousands of miles away from home and endure nearly six months in the Arabian desert, culminating in the white-knuckle terror of tank combat against Iraq's feared Republican Guard.
