An excellent book about the pay back from of a unit of Marines piled onto some primitive fool hardy Taliban who could not take the pressure of having Marine grunts force of arms pound them into submission. An up and coming Taliban wannabe leader nearly wiped out a four man Navy Seal recon unit and the Marines moved into the valley and did what they do best. Freedom isn't free!!
