"Reading the book was like sitting with an old friend while they told a story. It was gritty, moving and at times heartbreaking — such is war."
- Shane Griffis, Ponte Vedra Recorder
"This war memoir is different from any other. It is as real as it gets. Ryan A. Conklin has written a brutally honest, exciting, and heartfelt account… An Angel from Hell is a gripping story of patriotism, camaraderie, and sacrifice.… If you care about your country, get this book."
- Paul Rieckhoff, founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and author of Chasing Ghosts
"An Angel from Hell portrays the grim reality of Iraq’s condition during the 2005–2006 horror years in Tikrit. A candid, humorous, and tragic memoir from a genuine American soldier about ‘the real world’ of war."
- David J. Danelo, author of Blood Stripes: The Grunt’s View of the War in Iraq
"An Angel from Hell is a gritty, blunt, and laughout-loud funny war memoir from the grunt's perspective."
"Take a first tour of Iraq as part of Angel Company and subsequently experience sights and sounds, emotions and horrors that the bulk of the nation could never imagine, and only get inklings of through documentaries and films."
