When I began reading the obstacle to continue to read was the poor prose and the narrative was not catching. I have not read the entire book but will push through. Maybe I'll get un-bogged down.

I have to agree this is a fantastic read. I will be recommending it highly. I will go out on a limb and say the battle of outpost Keating is the Ia Drang of Afghanistan - the urgency is there from the get go.

Have read a lot of war fiction and nonfiction. This is now on my best list. One of the best actual battle reads I've had.
