Absolutely AMAZING!!! June 3 2009
By Chris - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The other reviews on Amazon have summed up my review pretty well.
This book covers - in its entirety - a seemingly forgotten battle early in the Afghanistan War/Conflict/Police Action or whatever it's being called these days.

The book was written by a Brit, mostly about Brits, so expect some "colonial" put-downs against our American boys. However, they are typically good-natured and are used sparingly.

Anyway, this book is a quick read and is bursting at the seams describing contemporary warfare at its quickest and bloodiest.

This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in the Qala-I-Janghi (Fortress of War), the War in Afghanistan, Special Forces operations, a war account from America's most steadfast ally, a break-neck action story, or just anyone who wants to read an interesting and entertaining story.

Another great book by Lewis Feb. 10 2014
By NH Outdoorsman - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a well written, action packed book about a battle that few people knew took place. Again Lewis does a great job of telling the story in an attention grabbing manner and doesn't just try to fill up space. He does a super job with the back stories and the reasons why all those bad guys could have gotten so many weapons into prison.

This book was actually written about a friend who was
in the war over in Iraq. Written by an Englishman.
Good and not an absolute accurate account.
