Description

On April 6th, 2003, twenty-six Green Berets, including those of Sergeant 1st Class Frank Antenori's Special Forces A-team (call sign Roughneck Nine-One), confronted a vastly superior force—one that included battle tanks and more than 150 well-trained, well-equipped, and well-commanded soldiers—at a remote crossroads near the small village of Debecka, Iraq. The rest is history…

Along the way, they endured a U.S .Navy F-14 dropping a 500-pound bomb on supporting Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, the ever-present threat of WMDs, and countless other deadly obstacles.

This is the never-before-told, unsanitized story of how one Special Forces A-team recruited and organized, trained and eventually fought—and won—a legendary conflict that will influence American military doctrine for years to come.

Reviews

  • Thin,one whole story

    By Jonbonjovy
    This is a really thin rad, where the writer takes any itty bitty thing and expands it to 3-4 pages to fill the pages of this book. You keep waiting of something but it's page and page of inane blather, culminating to ONE boring battle, stretched out to fill the end 1/3 of book. Of course the writer, a sergeant, tries to pull of like he is the wise warrior, smarter than all of the superiors and fellow warriors. Really disappointing, writer credentials are suspect.
