    At 24 years of age, U.S. Army Ranger Sean Parnell was named commander of a forty-man elite infantry platoon - a unit that came to be known as the Outlaws - and was tasked with rooting out Pakistan-based insurgents from a mountain valley along Afghanistan's eastern frontier. Parnell and his men assumed they would be facing a ragtag bunch of civilians, but in May 2006 what started out as a routine patrol through the lower mountains of the Hindu Kush became a brutal ambush.

    Story
    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    I really enjoyed the apparently honest review of the strengths and weaknesses of a combat unit and the individuals that make up those units. They are still humans being asked to do superhuman things.


    What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought emotions and character voices to the story. This helped me distinguish between the main characters and to feel like I was getting to know them.


    If you could give Outlaw Platoon a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The brotherhood of facing courage and fear under fire.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book.
