"'An astonishingly gifted writer... Powerfully dramatic' Guardian 'A fascinating story of idealism, fantasy, and the dark side of the wilderness experience.' Paul Theroux 'Masterly, with a glittering certainty of description and devastating insight' Guardian 'Krakauer paints a vivid and moving picture of the courage, pride, egotism and blind determination of the men and women who set out to conquer the world's highest mountains.' Daily Mail"Reseña del editor:
In May 2002, Pat Tillman walked away from his $3.6 million NFL contract to enlist in the United States Special Operations Forces. He was deeply troubled by 9/11, and felt a strong moral obligation to join the fight against al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Two years later, he would die on a desolate hillside in south-eastern Afghanistan. News of Tillman's death dealt a devastating blow not only to his family and friends, but also to his fans - he was a much loved public figure, and his memorial service was watched by millions on American television. But while the public believed that Tillman had died in the line of duty, most of the two dozen soldiers on the scene knew what the US Army had aggressively maneuvered to conceal: that it was a ranger in Tillman's own platoon who had fired the fatal shots. In Where Men Win Glory, Jon Krakauer renders an intricate portrait of this driven, complex and uncommonly compelling figure and tells the gripping story of the search to uncover the truth about his death. Infused with the power and authenticity readers have come to expect from Krakauer's storytelling, Where Men Win Glory exposes shattering truths about men and war.
