Author Malcolm MacPherson tells the true story of a top-secret Navy SEAL mission in Afghanistan. The effort ended in a brutal attack by Al Qaeda militants hiding along the mountain of Takur Ghar, which forced Petty Officer First Class Neil Roberts from his helicopter into the arms of the enemy. Based on true stories and eyewitness accounts, the following 17 hours relate in full detail the SEALs' fight to rescue one of their own before it's too late. The reliable Joe Barrett delivers a powerful yet understated narration, which allows the captivating story to almost tell itself. Barrett’s respectful approach makes the SEALs and their deathly mission the true stars of the story. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
