About the Book: No Way Out: A Story of Valor in the Mountains ofAfghanistan
It seemed like an impossible mission right from the start. A Special Forces teamplanned to land in an enemy-held valley, scale a steep mountain in Afghanistanto surprise and capture a terrorist leader. But before they found the target, thetarget found them...
The team was caught in a deadly ambush that not only threatened their lives, but theentire mission. The elite soldiers fought for hours, huddled on a small rock ledge asrocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine gun fire rained down on them. With totaldisregard for their own safety, they tended to their wounded and kept fighting to stayalive. When the battle finally ended, ten soldiers had earned Silver Stars- the Army'sthird highest award for combat valor. It was the most Silver Stars awarded to any unit inone battle since Vietnam. Based on dozens of interviews with those who were there, NoWay Out is a compelling narrative of an epic battle that not only tested the soldiers'mettle but serves as a cautionary tale: Be careful what you ask a soldier to do becausethey will die trying to accomplish their mission.
