Editorial Reviews

This story starts out like most war stories with a battle ensuing and the protagonist, Dan Ross, an American soldier is very cognizant of the fact that he is responsible for the lives of the men who follow in his command. In the beginning, he is pinned down on the side of a mountain and the Afghan insurgents are pummeling them. Dan doesn't have many men with him and his commander is supposed to be nearby supporting him, but he never shows up. Dan finally is able to get his men in control and they capture an Ahman who is guarded by the ANA, which are a mixture of Afghan men who have joined with the American forces to fight the insurgents. However, Dan is suspicious of them. When Dan questions his commander why he wasn't there to help them, the man replied he was where he was supposed to be and Dan was wrong. Later Dan notices that the ANA men are very polite to the Ahman, which makes Dan suspicious and then one day the ANA shoot all of Dan's men in the back and only Dan and another man escape alive.Dan is so shot up, including a bullet in the spine that he is paralyzed from the hips down and he is in a wheel chair. He intends to get well within the year and go back and find these men and kill them. The fact that Dan lost all of his men but one weighs on him heavily.Eventually the Army discharges him, feeling he'll never get well enough to soldier again, which embitters Dan whose entire focus is getting back to Afghanistan and take his revenge. The story picks up speed as Dan finds a way to get back there and the Afghan people he meet while he seeks out the insurgents. This is what makes the story so different than many of these war stories and it shows Dan's ingenuity. This story is well written, is almost a page turner and brings out some true facts like the American people really don't want to think about the war in Afghanistan and Iraq and since there is no draft, it is easy to just ignore it.
