This is coming from a guy who was in the Army and my father retired from the Army. Major Gant was a soldiers soldier, the type of gung ho officer everyone wanted. After reading this book I'm ashamed that the top brass let this happen!! Did Major Gant break some Army regs.? YES!! Has most every solider in the Army done the same? YES!!! Jim Gant is a true Spartan. He got the job done and never lost a man down range and that is the stuff the Army can't take away. Major Gant's legend will grow and it should. I think Jim did turn tribal but that is what he was asked to do.Taking Ann Scott in was over the top but the heart wants what the heart wants. Drinking beer on christmas and you loose your rank? I was in Kuwait and alcohol and more was available while I was deployed. Everyone who has served in the military world knows Major Jim Gant was shafted. Its sad but Jim Gant can watch my six anytime!!!! One article 15 can't take away what you did for this country. Thanks for all you have done and your service!!!! Major Jim Gant makes me proud to say I was in the Army!!!! Hooah!!!

This book is the epitome of the looking glass into the unconventional approach to modern warfare, and a Warrior's word to serve his country and the people who need his help the most. The story is of hope, love, betrayal, and demise, but packed full of life and leadership lessons throughout.
The narrators give an amazing performance, the story is well written and easy to follow as it jumps back into time with recalling past events. Excellent account of the way forward to progress the relationships with the Afghan people, and the military leaders who thwarted and stalled its progress.
this is a story of a legand n a betrayal.
soemting we see often..
the greed of higer appointments. is someting that is everywere.
thx for the time.. put into writing this book.
if the listeners is lloking for an action book. this isnt it.but if the listener is looking ofr the skills
of war n negotiations.. this is a good guide book
There was good use of male and female narration through this book to support the main players.
It really supports the need for greater intervention for SF guys suffering PTSD and the divide between what politicians think is achievable and what it takes to get there - they are unconventional forces for a reason!
At times a challenging listen at times, worth it in the end.
