Thrilling account of America's finest!
WOW!! What an incredible story. This is a book you will not soon put down. A thrilling account of America's finest special forces and their attempt to resuce Navy Seals ambushed in Afghanistan. The story is full of detail. I can get a little confusing with who is who due to all the soldiers the involved this account, but nonetheless it is a well documented and well written book.
It really is a book our youth should read. It will give them and all of Americans an inside look at how courageous, selfless, honorable, and down right tough as nails our soldiers truly are! They are truly our proud and our brave!!
Rangers Lead The Way!

Honour of the commandos' spirit
This book pays a great tribute to American commandos during a battle on a mountain high altitude, ice, wind at night in Afghanistan lead by special forces commandos. The spirit is high. Fierce combats. The ennemy is dreadful. Very nice work.
Pretty good book on combat ops in Afghanistan
"Roberts Ridge" tells it like it is! Rather hard to follow at times, and that's partially the fault of the author. But, in his favor, given the convoluted command structure that was in place at the time of the ill fated recon & subsequent rescue attempts on Takur Ghar, he does the best he can. I was constantly going back through the text trying to figure out who was calling which shots during this action. The book does provide an insider's look at the "Fog of War" and the confusion resulting therefrom. It also is an outstanding tale of courage and fortitude on the part of the Navy Seals, USAF Spec Ops, and Army Rangers who were involved in this combat operation. And there's sadness inasmuch as the casualties incurred by all the fine US forces involved need not have happened. JKBelew in Texas, an Old Marine & lifelong military history student.

That their deeds not be forgotten.
Very moving story! I am glad that Mr. MacPherson did not give up and saw this book through to its conclusion.
This is a story is taken from multiple viewpoints to form a more complete understanding of what happened atop Takur Ghar. As this story unfolds you are able to see in your mind everything that happens. Also interesting is the benefits and ills of modern technology and how it affects modern warfare. A great book and a must read!!
It will surely remain a lasting tribute to all those brave soldiers and airmen who lived and died through it.

Interesting book on a small action in the war in Afganistan. Brave troops can't overcome poor leadership.
