"Excellent intense read gives you a brief feel for what it was like to be a soldier in the midst of the battle."
I was a real fan of band of brothers which gave you an intense understanding of the brotherhood experienced by our World War II soldiers.
This book has much of the same feel but gives you a much more modern understanding of the strong relationships that develop among the men within the platoon both in and out of the battle.
I really enjoyed this book and thought it was well done.
this book truly allows the listener/reader to see. the sacrifice our brave soldiers make to protect our country. never has a book elicited such a range of emotions fom happiness to sadness to anger. amazing
I like every bit of what I listened to; and didn't give a break till I completely absorbed the materials. great tool for current and future warriors. The world is extremely hostile and you gotta be prepared with everything of yous to face such daring enemies.
This is the first book I think I would actually listen to a second time. Gives the reader a view into the life of military patrols in the desert. It drew me right back in. Wanted to grab an M4 and get busy!!
Tha battle where the Outlaw platoon was just about over run.
If you like books that cover good battles this one is for you! The naration by Ray Porter is one of the best I have ever listened to. He takes on the personallity of multiple characters and makes the book an awesome experience. I will definately look for more books narated by him!!
I'm a 4th generation native of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. A beautiful, Victorian era village located in the midst of the Ozark Mountains. I love history and in fact I am a tour guide and somewhat of a local historian.
I will admit I have been biased recently with all of the SEAL Team stories, so I hesitated on this book. I am so glad that I bought it though. An excellent book and fabulous and exciting, adrenaline pumping and sometimes tear jerking story. You won't regret getting this book.

Enjoyable is not a word I would use in the experience of listening to this book as it is so compelling.
The whole story itself. The way the author told the story of himself and his men and how much they gave and gave up in the battle for our country. I feel that folks who do not read or listen to these stories have absolutely no idea what these men and women go through each and every day they are 'in country'.
By the end our hearts were broken. My husband is a wounded Viet Nam vet so he actually knows how terrible the whole situation is.
