In 2009, Clinton Romesha of Red Platoon and the rest of the Black Knight Troop were preparing to shut down Command Outpost Keating, the most remote and inaccessible in a string of bases built by the U.S. military in Nuristan and Kunar in the hope of preventing Taliban insurgents from moving freely back and forth between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Three years after its construction, the army was finally ready to concede what the men on the ground had known immediately: it was simply too isolated and too dangerous to defend.

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.
