    In the fall of 2009, Taliban insurgents ambushed a patrol of Afghan soldiers and Marine advisors in a mountain village called Ganjigal. Firing from entrenched positions, the enemy was positioned to wipe out 100 men who were pinned down and were repeatedly refused artillery support. Ordered to remain behind with the vehicles, 21 year-old Marine corporal Dakota Meyer disobeyed orders and attacked to rescue his comrades.

    What did you love best about Into the Fire: A Firsthand Account of the Most Extraordinary Battle in the Afghan War?

    Enjoyed hearing about the people who make up our fighting military....personalities, character, background and interpemersonal relationships among them. Also, as a civilian, this book helps me to understanding what makes our military so successful, and unfortunately, at times ineffective. Thanks to all vets who willingly due such an incredibly difficult job at incredibly high personal costs to family and self.


    What other book might you compare Into the Fire: A Firsthand Account of the Most Extraordinary Battle in the Afghan War to and why?

    House to House and Outlaw Platoon.


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

    He gives the guys in the book a realism and connection....well done.
