Publisher's Summary

Level Zero Heroes, Michael Golembesky's best-selling account of Marine Special Operations Team 8222 in Bala Murghab, Afghanistan, was just the beginning for these now battle-hardened special operations warriors.
The unforgiving Afghan winter settled upon the 22 men of Marine Special Operations Team 8222, call sign Dagger 22, in the remote and hostile river valley of Bala Murghab, Afghanistan. The Taliban fighters in the region would have liked nothing more than to once again go dormant and rest until the new spring fighting season began. No chance of that - this winter would be different.
Along with Afghan and International Security Forces (NATO), the marines of Dagger 22 continued their fight throughout the harsh winter to shape the battlefield before the Afghan ground began to thaw. From one firefight to the next, the noose began to tighten around the village of Daneh Pasab and the Taliban command cell operating there. On April 6, 2010, a ground force consisting of US Army Special Forces, Afghan commandos, and Marine Corps special operations conducted a night assault to destroy the heavily entrenched Taliban force, breaking their grip on the valley and stopping the spring offensive before it even began.
But nothing in Bala Murghab comes easily, and combat operations wear on the operators of Dagger 22 as they lean on each other once again in order to complete their mission in one of the most brutal environments on earth.

Good Story, but...

The story was good, but I had a hard time getting past the reading style of the narrator.

Sucked

Narrator was an over actor, mis pronounced military acronyms, story dragged on and on with no highs and tons of lows, takes major endurance to make it through... don't waste your money

Good Listen - Eventually

Really struggled with the narrator for the first 3rd of the book. Kept over emphasising final words in sentences. Suspect he was trying to add atmosphere but nearly put me off enough to stop listenin. Thankfully he improves until he tries the female voice. Did take away from what would have been a much better story and listen

Seriously?

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I can not think of anyone

Has Dagger 22 put you off other books in this genre?

No not really.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Tiredness.

Any additional comments?

The story is simply about a soldier and his experiences, which I'm sure are true and harsh. However the story told is bloated, repetitive and the narrators huge effort to make the book sound interesting made it sound like a never ending hammy intro to a B movie. Try the sample before purchasing. This is no reflection at all about the solder, but I am saddened how his effort to share his experiences have been let down by the poor content and narrator.
