Publisher Description

On April 6th. 2003, twenty-six Green Berets, including those of Sergeant First Class Frank Antenori's Special Forces A-Team (call sign Roughneck Nine One), fought a vastly superior force at a remote crossroads near the village of Debecka, Iraq. The enemy unit had battle tanks and 150 well-trained, well-equipped and well-commanded soldiers. The Green Berets stopped the enemy advance then fought them until only a handful of Iraqi survivors finally fled the battlefield.

In the process, the Nine One encountered hordes of news media and at the peak of the fight, a US Navy F-14 dropped a 500-pound bomb into the middle of a group of supporting Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, killing and wounding dozens.

Roughneck Nine One is the never-before-told, unsanitized story of the fight for the crossroads at Debecka, Iraq, and a unique inside look at a Special Forces A-team as it recruits and organizes, trains for combat, and eventually fights a battle against a huge opposing force in Iraq.

Get unabridged version if you can.

Great story about SF training and what it takes to go to war. Detailed accounts about the invasion, hold-ups with chain of command, and ultimately victory. Well worth the money. I bought in 2008 unabridged and have listened to it over and over again.

False Advertising!!!!!!

Says it is 9 hours but is really only a little over 4 when downloaded. I think it is abridged not unabridged and cannot get an anwser from I-Tunes. Story is great just wish it were longer.
