Reviews

The remarkable account of the "Horse Soldiers," a group of top secret Special Forces operatives who entered Afghanistan following 9/11, is dramatically recounted in Stanton's thrilling story. The soldiers found themselves in the center of an ambush after successfully forcing hundreds of Taliban to surrender-and Dennis Boutsikaris reads with such raw emotion, it seems as if he were actually there, his life nearing an end. His gritty voice and characterizations convey the bravery and pride of the Horse Soldiers and will engage his audience from start to finish. A Scribner hardcover. (May) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

In the heady days immediately after the American invasion of Afghanistan, a few hardy soldiers infiltrated the country's Taliban strongholds and fought a guerrilla war. They often used horses, worked with indigenous fighters, called in air strikes, and gathered vital intelligence. Their high point was the ousting of the Taliban from Mazar-i-sharif. A lively and exciting battle chronicle that will be popular. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
