Carnivore, Memoir, One of the Deadliest, American Soldiers, All Time

Carnivore by Dillard Johnson

Carnivore by Dillard Johnson

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Credited with more than 2,600 enemy KIA, he is perhaps the most lethal ground soldier in U.S. history.

Amid ferocious fighting that many times nearly took his life, Sergeant Dillard “C. J.” Johnson is recognized by the Pentagon to have accounted for more than two thousand enemy killed in action while battling inside and out of the “Carnivore,” the Bradley Fighting Vehicle he commanded during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

After miraculously beating stage-three cancer (caused by radiation exposure from firing armor-piercing depleted-uranium rounds during combat), he returned to his platoon in Baghdad for a second tour, often serving as a sniper protecting his fellow troops.

He is credited with 121 confirmed sniper kills, the most ever publicly reported by a U.S. Army soldier and the second-most in U.S. history, behind American Sniper author Chris Kyle.

Today, Johnson’s story is the stuff of legend—earning him a cover story in Soldier of Fortune and a display in the Fort Stewart Museum. But only now is he telling his full story: filled with bravery, humor, and astonishing details from the battlefield, Carnivore is the gripping and unflinchingly honest autobiography of a remarkable American warrior.

Copies of Carnivore by Dillard Johnson are available on Amazon: http://tiny.cc/722o7w
