9781456408138: Burden of Command: A Tale of Extraordinary Leadership in Afghanistan

When a mixed group of American and German soldiers becomes surrounded by elite al Qaeda forces in remote northeast Afghanistan, two unlikely soldiers take charge and organize the defense until a relief force can come to their rescue. Unexpectantly, the defenders have captured something al Qaeda desperately wants to retrieve and spares nothing in the endeavor.
