Publisher's Summary

In a remote enemy-held valley in Afghanistan, a Special Forces team planned to scale a steep mountain to surprise and capture a terrorist leader. But before they found the target, the target found them. The team was caught in a deadly ambush that threatened not only their lives but the entire mission.

The elite soldiers fought huddled for hours on a small rock ledge as rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine-gun fire rained down on them. With total disregard for their own safety, they tended to their wounded and kept fighting to stay alive. When the battle finally ended, 10 soldiers had earned Silver Stars - the army's third highest award for combat valor. It was the most Silver Stars awarded to any unit in one battle since Vietnam.

Based on dozens of interviews with those who were there, No Way Out is a compelling narrative of an epic battle that not only tested the soldiers' mettle but serves as a cautionary tale. Be careful what you ask soldiers to do, because they will die trying to accomplish their mission.

    "Great book"

    This book was well put together and well narrated as a former military myself, this book brought tears to my eyes.

    "Pretty Good"

    A good story however a majority is spent building up and not enough on the fight itself.

    "lots of background story"

    while it is a great biography and story, it doesn't have the wow factor like "the operator" but maybe I'm just nostalgic for the killing of bin laden.

    "Narrator ruins the story"

    Story is awesome. Narrator is un-listenable, a problem increasingly more frequent on Audible. Sounds like a robot.
