This is an interesting little novella about an early important joint multinational military operation at the beginning of the war in Afghanistan. There is quite a bit of military lingo that is explained in the glossary included. It gives some incite into the feelings and concerns of soldiers involved in the on the ground operation to rout out Al-Qaeda and the Taliban, as well as about the practical obstacles they encountered. I grew up watching the Vietnam war on TV, and did find this book entertaining. It's more of a man's topic here, don't know if many women would like it. There is also presentation of the battle from both the enemy's as well as the ally's points of view, which is cool!
