Jake Tapper, in addition to being one of the true journalists of our time, is an amazingly gifted writer. There's no attempt at spin or gloss, just the hard reality of what it's like to be lonely and isolated in a remote corner of the world. The research is top notch. In addition to understanding the fog of war, but you come away with feeling like you really know the soldiers along with their friends and family and what the war has meant for everyone. And it makes you realize how amazing our soldiers are and what they've sacrificed.
I think that The Outpost has a potential for being on of the great books on war and the combat experience, along with We Were Soldiers Once...and Young: Ia Drang - The Battle That Changed the War in Vietnam and Generation Kill. This book is highly recommended.
If you liked "War" by Sebastian Junger & his related award winning documentary "Restrepo," you should enjoy this book. Whereas Junger's "War" documented the service of one platoon at a combat outpost (COP) in Afghanistan; the COP itself becomes a "character" in "The Outpost." The book documents the incubation of the idea of COP Keating through to the actual creation of the COP to it's final showdown & recounts the history & stories of the units that served on the COP. The book also provides contextual history of Afghanistan & the affected province(s). "The Outpost" also includes interesting "character development" in telling the stories of many of the troops that served at COP Keating. Words fail me at describing this important book & it's impact. The first time l read the book; l got to the last page, finished it, & immediately went back to page 1 & began reading it again. I've read it 4-5 times, it is that good.
I am grateful that Tapper painstakingly told this incredible & must-read story. I am grateful for the heroic service of the many men that served at COP Keating & the surrounding COPs. God bless & watch over US veterans. MJP
