Intensely personal account of a young officer's struggle to lead from the front and never let his men down. Be careful, because as you listen you may realize that you could never be as courageous as Parnell and the men of the Outlaw platoon. JCW Manteo, NC
When you sleep safe and comfortable in your bed, these are the men that make it possible. This story of sacrifice, Honor, and Duty are what makes this country great. This story will make you rethink passing by a veteran again without stopping to thank them or pick up their tab. What we owe them is beyond comprehension, but this will give you a window.
First and foremost is Ray Porter as a narrator. At times, I could smell the smell and taste the taste of Afghanistan. I gripped the steering wheel so hard while listening that my arm and shoulder hurt in the evening. Wow!
great read and great story...well narrated...thank you outlaw platoon...I envy your connection to your fellow soldiers
This book was written very well. I'm not a book reader in the slightest. I have trouble sitting still for long periods. Let alone staying interested in a book all the way through. But this true story was simply amazing. Hearing about the trials and tribulations of American soldiers. People who fought, and have died for our freedom! People who sacrificed everything. For people they didn't even know... (Meaning, the citizens of America.)
I was itching to keep the story going. I even purchased a Bluetooth headset. Just to keep it going in one ear while at work. The story was a masterpiece. A journal of a man at war. Including all of the emotions that go with it.
Hearing something like this makes you proud to be an American. Makes you proud of all of the United States soldiers that serve in our great military. Thank you all for your service!
This book was fantastic. I would definitely purchase it again without hesitation! Something I wish that could be forgotten. Just so it could be re-read! Yes, i think it's that good!
