Riveting, heartbreaking, inspiring, honest, best combat action description ever written. You won't believe what these guys go through and can endure. Not an easy book to read if you don't have an open mind. Challenges you to leave the detachment of a war observer behind and think about the consequences of taking or not taking actions in the real combat arena. No easy answers. Fascinating episodes after the battle reveal the complex nature of Afghanistan, tribal culture and customs, and basic human decency. An amazing book and a look at the special forces community you can't find anywhere else.
