Praise

Concrete Hell is a masterful study of the brutal realities of modern combat, tracing the development of military operations in an urban environment from the Soviet defense of Stalingrad in World War II to the recent operations of the US Army in Iraq. The author has synthesized 24 years experience in the US Army and in doing so has created a blueprint for urban warfare in the future. Such a study could not be more timely.”
–Savannah Jones, www.sirreadalot.org (December 2012)

“I can recommend this book to the history buff and to the wargamer who is gaming in urban situations. I found this book extremely enjoyable and hard to put down once I started reading it, and I believe so will you.”
- Richard Mataka, www.mataka.org

“…recommended reading for anyone interested in learning about urban combat … it will be of value to soldiers wanting to quickly learn the hisory and the myriad tactical, operational, strategic and political considerations associated with fighting in cities.”
- ARMY magazine (August 2013)

“…DiMarco’s study achieves success in all of the supplemental considerations for an undertaking of this nature. His analysis is well-supported by quality maps, the chapters are coherently organized, with synopses followed by analysis for each battle, and the conclusions are built on logical and sequential foundations.”
- Army History (summer 2014)
