Reads like a novel.
Reviewed in the United States on January 23, 2018
An interesting read spurred by the movie '12 Strong'. Had heard/read a few articles about the first days of the war in Afghanistan and the SpecOps but wanted to know more. I did a little research and this and 'Jawbreaker' were recommended as giving the most concise views of that timeframe. Still reading 'Jawbreaker', which is good but did not read like "First IN". This is well written and reads like a novel for the most part. Some of the names and terminologies are a bit confusing at first but it all shakes out. Great read that I didn't want to end. Would love to know more someday but ... it's the CIA so they'd have to kill ya.
