gripping account of honor and loyalty to brothers in arms, and the true account of difficulties with the pc roes
Say something about yourself!
Afghanistan was lost early on due to a lack of clear objectives and cloudy rules of engagement. Lack of coordination between the Army and the Marine Corps (really? is that STILL happening?) didn't help either. It also doesn't help that we keep trying to postage stamp democracy onto countries and cultures that are not ready... Whatever. Let's hope history will acknowledge at our motives were pure (about the nation building) and that we've learned some lessons about inter service support (as opposed to ass covering).
This is a great book. It is to bad about what actually happened but it shows how incompetant some people are in our Military and how things get covered up. People should be held responsible for what they do or do not do. They are depended on and that should carry a price.
I have already recommended this book to friends. The level of detail took me right there with 'Ko'.
The performance was excellent. I thought the performer caught the essences of who he was portraying.
The content powerfully caught the sense of brotherhood felt by those who are in combat. The battle scenes were heart breaking as brave men tried to overcome impossible odds against remote commands indifference to their plight. The behavior of remote and high command during and after the battle was most infuriating and damning.
A great story of brotherhood and bravery - well worth the listen.
This book really shows the crap that front line Marines have to do with a Bad rear support.How that bad support turned a ood Marine into a great Marine with a cost
The first third of this book was rather boring. The middle part was best and I guess I missed to download the last part.
Not at all, but I will avoid Bing West.
The story ended when It became intreresting.
