This is such an interesting topic. I wanted to like the book so much. I deeply respect the brave soldiers whose ordeals were relayed in this book. The book needed to do them more justice. It seemed to drag. The part where the base was overrun with Taliban fighters was a great piece of story telling. I could not imagine what it would have been like to been there. I only wish that Mr. Tapper could have made this story tighter. Americans need to know about these episodes of success within failure as well. A better book would make this story better circulated. One day we will be speaking to our children and grandchildren about these wars and our decisions to send our children overseas to fight and die in them.
No Easy Day
Sadness at the loss of life. Unfortunate decisions that are not well grounded end up being defended with blood and life. I am in full support of the military. I would hope that their decisions would consider future implications. I would feel Angry if I had a son lose a life at this base, it seemed senseless. These soldiers are so brave, it makes me feel very proud to be an American.
Yes. The story was written so well. The story moves and flows like the wild river it takes place on.
Yes. Characters were put in a very hard situation where initial choices played a huge role in later options. Leaving the normal workday to go into the wilderness with friends for some adventure. Too bad things did not turn out as expected.
Neither. This was one of those books that I had trouble putting down. The author did a terrific job with tying up loose ends. The entire story was great.
