War in Afghanistan: An Interactive Modern History Adventure by Matt Doeden, Blake Hoena

The war in Afghanistan is the longest war the United States has ever fought. It’s a tough war against a loosely organized and unpredictable enemy. How will you defend your country? Will you: Serve on an Army Ranger rescue team during the Battle of Takur Ghar? Protect a supply convoy as a member of the National Guard? Fight as a Marine aiding the Army Special Forces during Operation Moshtarak? Everything in this book happened to real people. And YOU CHOOSE what you do next. The choices you make could lead you to survival or to death.
