What I enjoyed about this book is the attention to detail on how our soldiers lived among the Afghanistan people. What they had to go thru, the battles they fought and also a look at their personal lives.
I walk away with an even a greater appreciation for all our men and women in uniform who sacrifice so much so we can enjoy our freedoms. Thank you for your service to our country
I most definitely recommend this book.
Incredible true story . An excellent job of writing. I truly could not put it down.
