From the Back Cover:

The frontlines on the war on terror A world away from his wife and family A downed helicopter, surrounded by al-Qaeda A trauma from which few recover completely "I had died on that mountain. Who I used to be, the man I was before, had died there, with many others. Now I didn't know who I was. Now I wanted to kill who I had become." For the first time ever, Nate Self tells the complete account, featured in part on Dateline NBC, of the battle he led in Afghanistan to rescue a Navy SEAL who had fallen into the hands of al-Qaeda fighters. It's the story of a hero who fights two wars-the fight in Afghanistan and the fight against Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder-to preserve his mind and soul, his family and home. A rare look into a soldier's soul.
