This review is from: The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor (Hardcover)
Jake Tapper knocked this one out of the park. His tireless research, interviews, and fact-checking (over 2 years) provided one of the most gripping books about the war in Afghanistan. This book provides incredible details about the Soldiers who fight this war. Mr. Tapper seamlessly transitions from the establishment of a remote outpost, to the difficulties each of the 4 units faced while stationed there, to the closure of the base. While covering the unit mission and firefights that ensue, Jake also tells the audience details about the Soldiers. He writes of the qualities, character, and tom-foolery of the Soldiers assigned to this outpost - placed in an indefensible position at the bottom of a steep valley. Jake brings attention to the incredible acts of selflessness, bravery, and courage to the few hundred men who called this place home. The book does not mask the atrocities of war. There are detailed accounts of the wounds and death that are all to familiar in heavy combat. This book is a must read for everyone to understand the sacrifices that are made. The public must know of the incredible sacrifices the families of the Fallen Heroes have made. Great work Jake Tapper. Thank you for telling our story.
