Item description for God Saw Them Through: Semper FI - "America's Battalion" in Iraq by Glenn Thomas...

Overview
Author Glenn Thomas, the father of a young Marine who served with the 2nd Battalion, 8th Marines (2/8) during Operation Iraqi Freedom. During the lead-up and combat phases of the war, his son, his family, and numerous other believers within 2/8 and their families experienced the incredible leading of God in prayer, and the Marines of 2/8 experienced the supernatural protection of God in the battles. The manuscript was carefully researched and written. Over forty interviews were conducted with the various Marines and family members involved. One amazing fact is that every officer of the battalion gave credit to God for having protected them through divine intervention. Despite being at the center of some of the heaviest fighting of the war, not one Marine from 2/8 was killed or missing in action, and every one of the forty wounded remained on active duty. Forward written by Marine General (four-star) Carleton W. Fulford, former commander of U.S. forces in NATO.

Community Description
"God Saw Them Through is a fascinating, inspiring, and convicting story about the answer to prayer for soldiers in warfare written by Thomas, the father of one of the marines in 2/8. Sometimes the military abbreviations overwhelm, such as one paragraph which includes the following: CO, XO, H&S Company, TAC CP (though definition is given), assistant S2, assistant S3, Main CP (definition given). Thomas gives all of the definitions at least once, but it can be confusing to those who are not familiar with military rankings and abbreviations. He also includes a helpful glossary, organizational charts, and some maps though a few more would be helpful. Regardless of the difficulties of the abbreviations, the message comes through clearly. God answered the prayers of thousands on behalf of 2/8. Thomas records how more than once individuals back home were awakened to prayer just before 2/8 was going into battle and that God laid specific requests on their hearts that He answered through their prayers. This has been one of the most inspiring books about prayer that I've read in a long time. Probably men and women with a military background will appreciate the style and content more than those of us who lack the background. This is a story that men in particular can enjoy. The first chapter bogs down a little with the introduction of the 2/8's leadership, but persevering through it pays off. Men and teenaged boys interested in the military might enjoy finding this book in their Christmas stocking. God's miraculous answers to prayer in keeping the marines safe during firefights will inspire anyone, military or not, to pray. -- Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book Previews.com "

Reviews - What do customers think about God Saw Them Through: Semper FI - "America's Battalion" in Iraq?

Responsibility  Dec 6, 2007
It was reassuring to discover that the leadership of the 2nd Battalion, 8th Marines took their responsibilities so seriously when preparing to be deployed to Iraq in 2003. Decisions were not made by an arrogant group of American military but rather by people who sought strength from a power admittedly far superior to themselves - God. Between the individual prayers of the marines themselves and prayer chains established across the country, the marines of 2/8 were shielded from any severe casualties. It defies logic that this battalion could have fared so well. After reading this book, perhaps more then once, you can decide for yourself if God really did see them through.
 
A blessed book to have for all military!  Oct 21, 2007
Gave this book to my husband as a gift and he absolutely loved it. After reading it, here's what he had to say:
FANSTASTIC! It should be read by all military members. A true example of God's present intervention on our behalf. We personally met Colonel Mortenson and he is a man of true character.

God bless!

A Batallion to Iraq and Everybody Came Home  Jul 7, 2005
There are only eighteen infantry battalions in the U.S. Marine Corp. This is the story of one of them through combat in Iraq in 2003. Commanded by Lt. Col. Royal Mortenson whose philosophy of command includes statements such as :It is fine for the Marine to be able to run three miles in eighteen minutes, but it is better to be able to run one mile in seventeen minutes carrying a wounded Marine on your back."

Lt. Col. Mortenson trained his battallion, took it to Iraq, into combat and brought them all back alive. To Lt. Col. Mortenson, a hearty well done. You deserve your subsequent promotion.

The author is the father of one of the young Marines that went to Iraq and back. He believes that the Christian faith of his son and of the rest of the Marines in this unit was responsible for the Lord returning all of these young men home. Who can say that he is wrong?
 
Inspirational Story  Dec 25, 2004
If you are a Christian and believe in the power of prayer, you will find the factual stories in this book very inspirational. Glenn Thomas has done a marvelous job in telling the story of the 2nd Battalion, 8th Marines during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Once you start reading, you won't be able to put the book down.
