If you could sum up Horse Soldiers in three words, what would they be?
Detailed, riveting, and exciting
What was one of the most memorable moments of Horse Soldiers?
SF and CIA agents being blown up by their own ordinance and surviving the blast that threw them more than 60 yards from their original position.
What does Jack Garrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Great emphasis in just the right spots of the story that make you feel as if you really know the people and their families.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
When the flintstones met the Jetsons.
Any additional comments?
Really terrific and detailed account of the initial surge into Afghanistan. The topic is very politically charged and the book is not overbearing in one political view or another. The acts of heroism on the battlefield are incredible and a testament to what these organizations can do with just a little support.

I can not even imagin riding those mountain trails and then into battle. I thought this book was very well written and well read. Today when we think of Cavalry it's usually 1st Air Cav sweeping in to save the day not men on actual horses. Warfare on a horse seems like it would be something those who put together this engagement would have to go back a 150 years or so and relearn. It was a good thing in this book to see the modern American Soldier and a Afgan man and his horses come together for a common purpose. I thank Mr. Stanton for doing this book otherwise these men and their story might have been lost to us. I was not familiar with this narrator but I thought he did a great read and I would enjoy hearing more from him.

In modern conflict, our choice must be to enable those that we believe in our hearts should win, to win.
This group of individuals exemplifies this sentiment and deserve to be admired and supported for their personal sacrifice.
When policy is decided, someone needs to make it happen.
I Thank you all.
This was a fantastic read - well written and with complete empathy for the main characters. The author captured the essence of these incredibly able and brave men and accurately showed their intelligence which often one assumes is not high in the military lexicon - but for Special Forces personnel and the missions they undertook, intelligence is a pre-requisite in addition to the awesome physical endurance
