The army does not want you to listen to this book. It does not want to advertise its detention system that coddles enemy fighters while putting American soldiers at risk. It does not want to reveal the new lawyered-up Pentagon war ethic that prosecutes US soldiers and marines while setting free spies who kill Americans. This very system ambushed Captain Roger Hill and his men.

As a former Currahee, this book accurately portrays the best and worst of the 506. No other book or movie describes the frustrations of deployment and the ramifications of toxic leadership better than CPT Hill's account. It was amazing how much came flooding back after listening to Hill's recollection and how accurately he describes Afghanistan. Definitely worth your time.
