    From the New York Times best-selling author of In Harm’s Way comes a true-life story of American soldiers overcoming great odds to achieve a stunning military victory. Horse Soldiers is the dramatic account of a small band of Special Forces soldiers who secretly entered Afghanistan following 9/11 and rode to war against the Taliban on horses. Outnumbered 40 to 1, they pursued the enemy army across the mountainous Afghanistan terrain and, after a series of intense battles, captured the city of Mazar-i-Sharif, which was strategically essential to defeat their opponent throughout the country.

    Frances says: "Wild Ride"
    "I've never HATED a narrator more."

    Story
    Would you try another book from Doug Stanton and/or Jack Garrett?

    Not by Jack Garret no.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I couldn't make it more than an hour into the book. The narration just grated on me.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jack Garrett’s performances?

    NO!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not that I could find.


    Any additional comments?

    Right at the beginning of the audiobook its referred to as a novel. It isn't. This confused me and I had to double check that it was indeed a nonfiction work. Not exactly the best way to inspire confidence.
