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.

    I was so emotionally moved by this book and getting a first hand view of what we never hear on the news. I have so much respect and admiration for all our service men and women and a true admiration for people like Sean Parnell

    I've read thousands of books and this is most profound literary experience ever. I wept through the last 20 pages. I'm sick over the residents from the Village of the Damned. That 6 year old boy. This redefines a war story. I'm haunted by simply reading what you and your men went through.

    An incredible read, this book was hard to put down, even to go to work. I really felt a part of the action with all of its highs and lows. Although I am not a big fan of war, the compassion felt for the Afghan people, not always returned, was inspirational and well-described. The Author was obviously qualified to tell his tale accurately, and tackled his own heroism with humility tempered with the necessary duty to document his own value to the operations. This Platoon served all of us well, and my wish for the surviving members is a long peaceful recovery from the horrors. I envy their brotherhood and earned trust in each other. I feel very real sadness now that the last page has been turned.

    A great story told in a way that captivates the reader. If you enjoyed the books American Sniper and/or Lone Survivor then you will love this book!

    A "can't put it down" first hand account of life under fire while fighting internal military politics, spies, and the elements. A fantastic story of leadership and sacrifice that gives new context to the stories of those who defend our freedom.

    Truly an inspiring and fantastic story shared with the rest of us by a loving and devoted leader. Told in engaging and vivid prose easily on par with any account of active duty beyond the wire.
