Roberts Ridge (O/P)

Author(s): Malcolm McPherson


Originally $37.99 At Takur Ghar mountain, south-eastern Afghanistan, on March 4, 2002 between the hours of 3 am and 8.15 pm, three men - a Navy SEAL, an Air Force Combat Air Controller and an Army Ranger platoon commander - are about to face the ultimate challenge. Only one of them will survive to recall the horror of what becomes a truly terrible day...

Roberts Ridge is a true story of endurance, tragedy and heroism. Acclaimed author Malcolm McPherson focuses on a 24-hour battle which resulted from what should have been a simple mission: a helicopter was to drop Neil Roberts and his SEAL team near the peak of Mount Takur Ghar to set up an Al Qaeda observation post and direct air strikes. When the mission goes wrong, its commanders worry about another 'Mogadishu scenario', and heat-of-the-moment decisions turn a rescue attempt into a catastrophe, in which seven soldiers die.
With unfettered access to Pentagon generals, the SEALs and the survivors, McPherson takes the reader deep into the heart this battle, and so we come face to face with the reality of modern war...
