Amid ferocious fighting that many times nearly took his life, Sergeant First Class Dillard "e;C. J."e; 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 "e;Carnivore,"e; 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.
