Publisher's Summary

The army does not want you to listen to this book. It does not want to advertise its detention system that coddles enemy fighters while putting American soldiers at risk. It does not want to reveal the new lawyered-up Pentagon war ethic that prosecutes US soldiers and marines while setting free spies who kill Americans.
This very system ambushed Captain Roger Hill and his men.
Hill, a West Point grad and decorated combat veteran, was a rising young officer who had always followed the letter of the military law. In 2007 Hill got his dream job: infantry commander in the storied 101st Airborne. His new unit, Dog Company, 1-506th, had just returned stateside from the hell of Ramadi. The men were brilliant in combat but unpolished at home, where paperwork and inspections filled their days.
With tough love, Hill and his first sergeant, an old-school former drill instructor named Tommy Scott, turned the company into the top performers in the battalion.
Hill and Scott then led Dog Company into combat in Afghanistan, where a third of their men became battlefield casualties after just six months. Meanwhile, Hill found himself at war with his own battalion commander, a charismatic but difficult man who threatened to relieve Hill at every turn.
After two of his men died on a routine patrol, Hill and a counterintelligence team busted a dozen enemy infiltrators on their base in the violent province of Wardak. Abandoned by his high command, Hill suddenly faced an excruciating choice: follow army rules the way he always had, or damn the rules to his own destruction and protect the men he'd grown to love.

This book could shape a generation.

An uncomfortable truth can be the most freeing thing, for it brings clarity to the deepest part of a man that knows there is something wrong with the world.

In an era of fake Social Justice this book could be the spark of a true movement that brings accountability to those in power.

In a nation that all to often tries to legislate morality the truth is that it is men like the men in Dog Company that plant roots of honesty and integrity into the American People.

Words Cannot Describe

Stands Alone, Together...Forever

Read, listen, and remember utmost loyalty to brothers above ones self. This was one of the most difficult things I've ever had to read and often uncontrollably had to put it down. Travesty, rage, unparalleled sadness, and even pride fall short to describe my last few days. I love and know several of these men and have been honored to trust my life to their care at some points a long the way. I will recommend this book wholeheartedly for the rest of my life.

The true men of 1st Battalion will always have my deepest and utmost respect, love, and loyalty.
