Courage is often enough to drive a soldier forward, to cause him to climb out of his foxhole and face enemy fire. But it takes a little more than courage to keep him going when every instinct dictates that he should do otherwise.

This is not an action packed book. It is detailed story of the thoughts and the works of a mid level officer in the pentagon. It works through the emotions, feelings and a few actions of the men in the recon team as well as a ranger battalion.

It does give a horrific insight into the captivity of POWs.

There is a lot of detailed explanation that slows down the pace of the book, even in the combat section of the book it is bogged down by functional details of equipment.

It's a well written book.

I really like the way that Coyle describes the action in his books. It's like being there. I also enjoy reading about new tools in warfare which help to keep our soldiers safer in battle. I do not like the political innuedos and swipes that Coyle interjects into his stories. If he wants to write about politics then he needs to change genres.

It is great to read a book that is supportive of the military. I appreciated his insight and positive knowledge of the Army.

It was a great fun read.
