love the story. truly inspiring and eye opening. narrator mispronounced some military terms, and sounded like a "surfer" reading a combat story. dakota meyer and the marines in this story are true heroes in an impossible situation
Yes. Gritty and compelling and informative.
Oh my goodness. There are so many. Frankly, I have not yet read a book on the Afghan or Iraq war that was not compelling, and I have read quite a a few. I suggest trying another one to see if you like it as much as this one.
The character narrating the story. Very descriptive.
Hell in Afghanistan.
Not for the squeamish.
Dakota is more that his Medals. He is just as human as all of us, but he differs in one way. He chooses to fight back everyday and provide inspiration to those of us that are in the need of hope. Along with his actions in Afghanistan, he continues to help those in the down with inspirational saying and post each day. Dakota is a constant Warrior.
very slow start. if i hadn't been bored i would have given up. HOWEVER, i couldn't stop listening till it was finished toward the end. the epilouge and notes were almost better than most of the book.
One of the most well written accounts of battle in the modern war era. And narrated equally well, helping to add to the presentation of a capturing and heart grabbing story of one of America's finest.
gripping account of honor and loyalty to brothers in arms, and the true account of difficulties with the pc roes
