Overview

In this gripping you-are-there account based on stunning eyewitness testimony and painstaking research, journalist Malcolm MacPherson thrusts us into a drama of rescue, tragedy, and valor from the war in Afghanistan.

For an elite team of SEALs, the mission seemed straightforward enough: to take control of a towering 10,240-foot mountain peak called Takur Ghar, a key post in their plan to smash Taliban al Qaeda in eastern Afghanistan. But the enemy was waiting, and when the Special Forces chopper was shredded by enemy fire, a red-haired SEAL named Neil Roberts was thrown from the aircraft. Roberts’s fellow SEALs were determined to bring him out—no matter what the cost. This harrowing true account captures in dramatic detail their seventeen-hour battle, fought against near-impossible odds, to save one of their own.
