About this title
This Man’s Army follows one extraordinary young man’s transformation from Ivy League student to twenty-first-century warrior. Soldier X vividly brings to life his journey through ROTC training, the grueling trials of the elite Ranger School, and into the treacherous terrain of the Shah-e-Kot Valley in Afghanistan. There he leads his men to root out the hardcore remnants of Osama bin Laden’s forces, and must confront and kill an Al Qaeda fighter. On his return to the United States, Soldier X must face how media coverage has distorted public perception of the war back home as he seeks to make peace with the man he had become.
In the tradition of Tim O’Brien’s If I Die in a Combat Zone, This Man’s Army is a gripping story of a young man’s introduction to the horrors of war, reported with brutal honesty and compelling insight. By turns harrowing and inspiring, it is the first account of combat from a new generation that is rising to confront the grave threat that faces our civilization and our way of life.About the Author:
Born and raised in Tennessee, twenty-five-year-old Soldier X graduated from an Ivy League university in 2000 and holds the rank of captain. A veteran of Operation Anaconda, he currently serves with the U.S. Army Rangers.
