Description
As leader of the unit dubbed "The Majestic Twelve," the author led his team on what some might call the most dangerous duty in the Iraq War-convoy escort. Lynch tells how he formed and commanded his all-volunteer unit, consisting of wildly varying personalities who nevertheless shared an unshakeable com mit - ment to each other and their missions. This action-packed narra tive, taking place between February and August 2004:   - Describes how the Twelve performed 230 missions while never once losing a member of his team or escorts - Provides a poignant look at brave soldiers who pay for gun sights and body armor out of their own pockets - Offers a fascinating look at military life and camaraderie - Reveals how the Twelve were even criticized among their own ranks for doing their jobs-i.e., following the Rules of Engagements and engaging the enemy when called for   This gripping military narrative shows how Lynch and his team fought the war one way: to win .
