Review:

"In the half-century since Robin Moore's "The Green Berets," no other account of Special Forces at war could match its range and depth and candor-until now. "American Spartan" will enlighten and disturb readers with its searing honesty..."--Dr. Kalev I. Sepp, former Green Beret and coauthor of "Weapon of Choice"

From the Publisher:

One of the most charismatic, controversial U.S. commanders of modern memory, Army Special Forces Major Jim Gant changed the face of America's war in Afghanistan when his critical white paper, "One Tribe at a Time," went viral at the Pentagon, the White House, and on Capitol Hill in 2009.A decorated Green Beret who had spent years training indigenous fighters, Jim argued for embedding autonomous units with tribes across Afghanistan: these American soldiers would live among Afghans for extended periods, not only to train tribal militias but also to fight with them in battle. He argued that these small U.S. teams could earn the trust of the Afghans and transform them into reliable allies with whom we could defeat the Taliban and Al Qaeda networks.Correspondent Ann Scott Tyson came to share Jim's vision that Americans and Pashtuns could fight side-by-side and create real change across the region, so she accompanied him to Afghanistan. This remarkable story--of Jim's close relationships with village elder Noor Afzhal, the fierce fighting they took straight to the enemy in the mountains of Konar Province, and Ann and Jim's deepening love for each other--is told with a keen sense of drama and immediacy.A story like no other, American Spartan is one of the most remarkable and emotionally resonant narratives of war ever published.

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 203 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Lawrence of Arabia meets Sebastian Junger s War in this unique, incendiary, and dramatic true story of heroism and heartbreak in Afghanistan written by a Pulitzer Prize-nominated war correspondent. Army Special Forces Major Jim Gant changed the face of America s war effort in Afghanistan. A decorated Green Beret who spent years in Afghanistan and Iraq training indigenous fighters, Gant argued for embedding autonomous units with tribes across Afghanistan to earn the Afghans trust and transform them into a reliable ally with whom we could defeat the Taliban and counter al-Qaeda networks. The military s top brass, including General David Petraeus, commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, approved, and Gant was tasked with implementing his controversial strategy. Veteran war correspondent Ann Scott Tyson first spoke with Gant when he was awarded the Silver Star in 2007. Tyson soon came to share Gant s vision, so she accompanied him to Afghanistan, risking her life to embed with the tribes and chronicle their experience. And then they fell in love. Illustrated with dozens of photographs, American Spartan is their remarkable story-one of the most riveting, emotional narratives of wartime ever published.
