Launched as part of operation Anaconda, the taking of Takur Ghar would offer U.S. forces a key startegic observation post But the enemy was waiting-

    This is a phenomenal book. If you liked "Lone Survivor", then this book will not disappoint.

    As a side note, Jon Schaffer, the guitarist and founder of the band "Iced Earth" wrote a song specifically for one of the SEAL members (Turbo) that was part of " Operation Anaconda". The song is called "Green Face" off of the "Glorious Burden" album.
