This book illuminates the fact that this country STILL produces great YOUNG citizens and warriors, despite not being considered the Greatest generation, etc. From my foxhole, this young leader and his Soldiers ARE the best generation, because what they are doing is relevant. My only complaint is that non-infantry Soldiers were characterized as lazy and unexposed to regular danger. Perhaps this is true, to some extent, but I know more than a few non combat arms soldiers what have been seriously injured or killed in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Unfortunately, the taliban has little sympathy for anyone wearing an American flag; moreover, when they are killed, they are just as dead as our infantry, armor, and artillery brothers
I could not stop listening. I stand in awe of what warriors go through, and still maintain their humanity.
Outlaw Platoon will hit you right between the eyes, and in the heart. Parnell captures the warrior bond with precision & love. no matter how tough you think you are, how battle-hardened, if this book doesn't bring you to tears or leave a lump in your throat, then you need to check your pulse.
Most of Americans do not know what type of fighting men our country deploys between us and the evil men that are intent on destroying our way of like and freedom. Thank you for such a heart wrenching story of you and your men's sacrifices for us at home in leisure. May we never forget your trials and loses for our sometimes seemingly ungreatful country.
Lt Sean Parnell does a tremendous job sharing his experiences as a commander of 30 men fighting hearded Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. Ray Porter's performance adds great value to making the story even more powerful. Among my top 3 Audible books enjoyed since 2012.
This book is absolutely amazing. What these brave men went through is unreal and I'm so grateful for their service. The narrator did a great job
telling the story. A must listen.
