I previously read Outlaw Platoon and was touched by the revealing look at the thoughts and struggles of a young combat infantry platoon leader. In telling the story, the author provided the humanizing bits showcasing the personalities and heart of his men that made you care about them, at the same time describing the battles they fought in gritty and vivid detail. I decided to add the audiobook to my collection and was very pleased with it.
I would compare the feelings evoked by reading Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell to those Sean Parnell brought out reading Outlaw Platoon.
His speaking cadence did justice to the first person telling of the story, both the stressful combat scenes and the light hearted moments.
I highly recommend Outlaw Platoon, both the book and the audiobook to anyone interested in what it was really like fighting in Afghanistan and an insight into the brave men who willingly go into harms way on behalf of the United States.
