Fantastic book and didn't end the way I thought. So angry at the lack of true leadership combat men and women have to put up with. Morons who think they know it all and fail to listen to men who really know what they are doing.
A must read if you want to know about Afghanistan. This is an incredibly sad, and exceptionally well written book about Green Berets in action with Karzai just after 9/11 in southern Afghanistan. Nearly a decade after this mission, the survivors are still suffering mentally as well as physically from the event that happened on 5 December 2001 and those events profoundly effected US military doctrine when it comes to airstrikes in support of ground troops. Definitely worth reading.
Im always a little reluctant to read a military book that hasn't been writen by the solider(s) who were actually there. Having read the reviews, I finally bought it. This is, apparently, quite a famous redent war story about a group of Green Berets (codename ODA 574) who were told to link up with then warlord, now previous president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai. The author spoke to practically everyone involved, including Kazai himself.
This is an amazing modern war story recount the green berets on the ground in Afghanistan. Definatly worth a read!!!
