The author did such an amazing job capturing your attention and the details of tragic but true war stories. As an Armed Forces member, I feel indebted to him for bringing the truth to light so people can see what really goes on in war in Afghanistan and in politics.
Up there with We were Soldiers Once and Young. So well written and researched, the author gave a holistic view of the battlefield and the challenges faced by the units operating there.
I listen to multiple books a week and this by far was one of the best. Give you a great understanding of what we service members give up. I'm a Marine and this story about the ARMY displays valor, honor, courage ,commitment and complete selflessness.
A classic account of men in battle. Tapper gives the history of one American outpost in Afghanistan, and in so ding, gives an indelible picture of the Afghanistan war as a whole. His account of the Taliban attack that nearly over ran the post is lucid and compelling. It reminds me of Blackhawk down in his ability to depict where everyone was during the entire course of the attack. Highly recommended.
