Wanna Know What Fighting A War Feels Like?
Read Parnell’s book to experience combat first-hand. You’ll go thru the early adrenaline rush of satisfying aggression...but that high is sadly followed with the reality of devastating deaths of his comrades in arms or watching a gate guard’s decapitation or having a little girl die in his arms or finding out his vile new interpreter is spilling his unit’s every secret to the enemy. You’ll share his deep frustration as he struggles with holding his soldiers accountable for making the right ethical calls (think of Vietnam’s Mi Lai massacre). And you’ll sense his utter disbelief of not being allowed to fight back when his troops constantly have visual knowledge of the supposed “good guys” (Pakistani military) clearly merging with the Taliban or the Haqqani network to fight the Americans.
A true page turner, masterfully written. Heart wrenching yet inspirational.
It is a rollercoaster from the beginning until the very end. It invoked my full spectrum of emotions and I am even more thankful for our service members after reading about the incredible and sometimes heartbreaking experiences of Outlaw Platoon.
Outlaw Platoon is a raw and honest look into the heart of a band of brothers. The courage and sacrifice of men who are bonded by the brotherhood of war and inspired to be fierce warriors out of love for each other. Thank you Sean Parnell for this intimate account of your service and the men of Outlaw.
This book is riveting and hard to put down. It seems that there are so many books on the topic about special forces. This book sheds light on the troops that do the true day to day heavy lifting in combat. It shows their professionalism and bond. This book made me even more proud to be an American. Thank you Sean and Outlaw Platoon for your service and for sharing your story.
Enjoyed the leadership role.
A raw look at war in Afghanistan and readjusting to civilian life.
This book is a great read. As a soldier myself, I had goose bumps more than once during this read. Good bless outlaw platoon.
Really enjoyed reading this. Couldn't put it down. I rarely start and finish a book in a weekend but the action is fast-paced and kept me wanting to know what happened next.
