recommending a book - Outlaw Platoon

I loved Lone Survivor and American Sniper. Those stories were child's play compared to Outlaw Platoon, written by the 24 year-old officer in charge of a 40-man Ranger platoon in Afghanistan. There were times I couldn't breathe, times I was sweating, and one part where I was uncontrollably sobbing.

Author's name is Sean Parnell, has done many TV interviews you can see on youtube...a most impressive young man. Stupifying story, a great description of the physical and emotional toll taken on these kids.
