No way out : a story of valor in the mountains of Afghanistan by Mitch Weiss ( Book )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It seemed like an impossible mission right from the start. A Special Forces team in Afghanistan planned to land in an enemy-held valley and scale a steep mountain to surprise and capture a terrorist leader. But before they found the target, the target found them. The elite soldiers fought for hours, huddled on a small rock ledge as rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine gun fire rained down on them. They tended to their wounded and kept fighting to stay alive. When the battle finally ended, ten soldiers had earned Silver Stars--the most awarded to any unit in one battle since Vietnam. Based on dozens of interviews with those who were there, this is a compelling narrative of an epic battle that also serves as a cautionary tale: Be careful what you ask a soldier to do, because they will die trying to accomplish their mission.--From publisher description
