Description

A riveting story of American fighting men, Outlaw Platoon is Lieutenant Sean Parnell’s stunning personal account of the legendary U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division’s heroic stand in the mountains of Afghanistan.

Acclaimed for its vivid, poignant, and honest recreation of sixteen brutal months of nearly continuous battle in the deadly Hindu Kesh, Outlaw Platoon is a Band of Brothers or We Were Soldiers Once and Young for the early 21st century—an action-packed, highly emotional true story of enormous sacrifice and bravery.

A magnificent account of heroes, renegades, infidels, and brothers, it stands with Sebastian Junger’s War as one of the most important books to yet emerge from the heat, smoke, and fire of America’s War in Afghanistan.

    It is a rollercoaster from the beginning until the very end. It invoked my full spectrum of emotions and I am even more thankful for our service members after reading about the incredible and sometimes heartbreaking experiences of Outlaw Platoon.

    This book is riveting and hard to put down. It seems that there are so many books on the topic about special forces. This book sheds light on the troops that do the true day to day heavy lifting in combat. It shows their professionalism and bond. This book made me even more proud to be an American. Thank you Sean and Outlaw Platoon for your service and for sharing your story.
