From the Publisher:
A Medal of Honor-awarded Marine sniper shares the controversy-marked story of his heroic contributions facing a 2009 Taliban ambush during which he saved a company of Afghan soldiers and Marine advisors, a victory that resulted from him disobeying orders and assuming command without reinforcements or artillery support. 45,000 first printing.
