Carnivore: A Memoir of a Cavalry Scout at War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Amid ferocious fighting that many times nearly took his life, Sergeant First Class Dillard "C. J." Johnson—one of the most decorated soldiers in the history of the legendary 3rd Infantry Division—and his crew are recognized by Pentagon reports to have accounted for astonishing enemy KIA totals while battling inside and out of the "Carnivore," the Bradley Fighting Vehicle Johnson commanded during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After miraculously beating stage-three cancer, he returned to his platoon in Baghdad for a second combat tour, often serving as a designated marksman protecting his fellow troops. Today, Johnson and his men's story of spearheading OIF is the stuff of legend—earning them a cover story in Soldier of Fortune and a display in the Fort Stewart Museum. But only now is Johnson telling his full story: reviewed and approved for publication by the Department of Defense, Carnivore is the gripping and unflinchingly honest autobiography of a remarkable American warrior, as well as a tribute to the men and women with whom he served.
