At 24 years of age, U.S. Army Ranger Sean Parnell was named commander of a forty-man elite infantry platoon - a unit that came to be known as the Outlaws - and was tasked with rooting out Pakistan-based insurgents from a mountain valley along Afghanistan's eastern frontier. Parnell and his men assumed they would be facing a ragtag bunch of civilians, but in May 2006 what started out as a routine patrol through the lower mountains of the Hindu Kush became a brutal ambush.

Thought provoking, emotional and at times brings a smile to your face.

Ray Porters brilliant narration brings this story alive.

First time Audible user and really enjoyed the experience. James Marsters is an excellent narrator and I look forward to listening to him some more. The story line kept my interest and I'll try Jim Butcher again.
