Outlaw Platoon: Heroes, Renegades, Infidels, and the Brotherhood of War in Afghanistan

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Sean Parnell, John Bruning

Summary:

A riveting story of American fighting men, Outlaw Platoon is Lieutenant Sean Parnell’s stunning personal account of the legendary U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division’s heroic stand in the mountains of Afghanistan.
Acclaimed for its vivid, poignant, and honest recreation of sixteen brutal months of nearly continuous battle in the deadly Hindu Kesh, Outlaw Platoon is a Band of Brothers or We Were Soldiers Once and Young for the early 21st century—an action-packed, highly emotional true story of enormous sacrifice and bravery.
A magnificent account of heroes, renegades, infidels, and brothers, it stands with Sebastian Junger’s War as one of the most important books to yet emerge from the heat, smoke, and fire of America’s War in Afghanistan.

    This is a powerful story. The hard part about war, is that war is hard to listen to. Most people feel that the whole world is like the United States and will not listen to the facts of how the rest of the world is truly evil. This story is on truly heroic men that fought for the freedoms that we all take for granted. When you listen to this book your heart and mind will be rocked, and you will find yourself thinking about it for days afterwards, maybe longer. Thank you to the men of the outlaw platoon for doing what they did.

    Wow! Well written and well read. A powerful story that I could not stop listening to. It has tender moments ,horrific stories that shock, and a story of self reflecting leadership. A military education that thankfully so many of us do not have to experience. Thanks for bringing the story to us.
