Summary
Tapper exposes the origins of one of the Afghan War's deadliest battles for U.S. forces and details the stories of soldiers heroic and doomed, shadowed by the recklessness of their commanders in Washington, D.C. and a war built on constantly shifting sands.
Summary
Traces the October 2009 attack on Combat Outpost Keating by Taliban forces near the Pakistan border, citing the conflict's status as one of the deadliest battles for U.S. forces and the controversial subsequent Pentagon ruling that the outpost should nothave been there in the first place
