The book is written by Bing West and I will read it soon. CBS news dif a piece with Bing in Afghanista. One interesting line he said a soldier asked if he wanted a weapon? His reply was if he needed a weapon the GI's had screwed up.  ;D

Looking forward to the book’s release.

T6, have you read/watched any of Sebastien Junger’s works on AFG? (War, Restrepo, Korengal, etc.)  I highly recommend them as well.

Regards

Yes I have based on your suggestion. Very interesting. In keeping with my interest in history I read a book about The naval war on the Great Lakes vs the French and the attack on Ft Niagra. Quite a logistics challenge. Eventually the British pushed the French out of North America.
