For the first time, Army Ranger hero Nate Self tells his story. Self recounts the Roberts Ridge Rescue mission, the ferocious battles in Afghanistan, and the lone war of attrition that Nate Self has waged against post-traumatic stress disorder. This book will become a go-to audiobook for understanding the long-term effects of the war on terror. Thousands of families are fighting this battle, and Nate Self opens up his whole life--tragedies, successes, failures, and a struggle with suicidal thoughts--to share the facts and to show how his family and his faith pulled him through.

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.
