    Junger turns his brilliant and empathetic eye to the reality of combat - the fear, the honor, and the trust among men in an extreme situation whose survival depends on their absolute commitment to one another. His on-the-ground account follows a single platoon through a 15-month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley.

    Overall

    Outstanding!!! This book shows the evolution of war into the dirty, politically driven effort that we find in the 21st Century. After reading the book, and seeing the movie "Restrepo" which was done by Junger, I came away asking myself "What is in Afghanistan that is worth this?" The book is extremely well done and captures the spirit of some excellent soldiers caught up in another situation where America is trying to recreate itself in a backward nation with no interest in change and no value of life.
