Red Platoon: A True Story of American Valor Book Review

I just recently finished reading Red Platoon: A True Story of American Valor. The book follows the true story of a platoon that found themselves defending COP Keating in early October 2009. COP Keating came under a massive attack from the Taliban — over 300 men to the US forces of only 50. Outnumbered and outgunned, the base was being overrun.

This is one of those books that is absolutely gripping. Once you start reading, you simply cannot put the book down. At some points, I got so enraged that I just wanted to pick up a rifle and join the battle, as ridiculous as that sounds.

Absolutely worth the read.
