Late in 2008 Chad Rickard deployed as a member of an Embedded Transition Team to the highly contested Khost Province of Eastern Afghanistan. As a senior infantry advisor, Rickard embedded with the Afghan Army and spent nine months slugging it out with Haqqani Taliban along the Pakistan border region in a deadly battle for control of the Spera District. His riveting memoir brings recognition and honor to the Embedded Transition Team legacy that is but a footnote in U.S. military history.

Great read by another great American who was boots on the ground in Afghanistan.
An interesting and behind the scenes look from an Embedded Training Team Leader in some of the roughest terrain in Eastern Afghanistan. Well written and action packed. Great read!
