I recently finished this excellent book. It is the story of a young man from Rhode Island and his experiences at West Point, Oxford,and Army Ranger School. The later chapters follow his deployment in Afghanistan. The pace and style of this biography is very engaging and within the first few pages you begin to care about the author and admire him. He is clearly an extremely bright, motivated and driven man. His accomplishments are inspiring,his sense of duty is laudable, and his personal insights are interesting. I enthusiastically endorse this book to all out there in the Blogosphere.
