    A very well written and researched book that tells the why behind the SEAL team that was compromised and killed during the opening phases of Operation Red Wings as well as what the Marine Corps 2d Battalion of the 3d Marine Regiment did to clean up the mess and carry out the operation afterward I highly recommend this book for military officers who will find themselves working in an increasingly joint environment Arrogant commanders and inter service posturing led to bad command decisions a A very well written and researched book that tells the why behind the SEAL team that was compromised and killed...

    The author, Ed Darack, was an embedded journalist with my unit during operation red wings This book reads very much like a Tom Clancy novel Just like with any war story, there s a lot of background story required for the audience to understand the context Ed did a great job at covering every element of the battle A key piece of info for those who are total Special Forces buffs at the time this book was written, only so much of the information available had been declassified Therefore, th The author, Ed Darack, was an embedded journalist with my unit during operation red wings This book reads very much li...

    Honestly, I think this was one of the worst books I ve read on the War on Terror I use that term to describe both the war in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan The story itself is great and this book does provide some insight into an operation that was very significant but the author s writing style is just terrible Its like a scripted, crappy Disney style plot that is incredibly one sided and sometimes just flat out cheesy Obviously many of the men described in the book are courageous, patrio Honestly, I think this was one of the worst books I ve read on the War on Terror I use that term to describe both the war in Iraq and the w...
