    The story of one of the Afghanistan war's most decorated units and their 15-month ordeal, culminating in the Battle of Wanat, the deadliest battle of the war. A single company of US paratroopers - calling themselves the "Chosen Few" - arrived in eastern Afghanistan in late 2007 hoping to win the hearts and minds of the remote mountain people and extend the Afghan government's reach into this wilderness. Instead, they spent the next 15 months in a desperate struggle, living under almost continuous attack, forced into a slow withdrawal, and always outnumbered by Taliban fighters.

    "Se la mattina vi fate il letto, avrete portato a termine il primo compito della giornata. Questo vi darà una sensazione di orgoglio e vi incoraggerà a concluderne un altro, e poi un altro ancora. Farsi il letto, inoltre, rimarca la consapevolezza che nella vita le piccole cose contano. Se non sapete fare bene le piccole cose, non ne farete mai di grandi."
