12 Strong by Doug Stanton

I purchased this book from Amazon for my husband to read. (Which is a challenge in itself.) But after it was sitting on the shelf and I read the blurb I decided to read it. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 12 Strong by Doug Stanton (previously published as Horse Soldiers). I knew this was a true story going into it but I still could not believe 12 special forces military personnel rode into Afghanistan on horseback……yes! Horses in the desert in a military operation…..I had no idea THIS still happens in modern day war. 12 men, 12 horses, and all their gear made a difference in the world like no other. They were outnumbered 40 to 1 and pursued the enemy to capture the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. But during the surrender the Horse Soldiers were ambushed and every thing takes a very wrong turn. Being captured was not an option and many lives were at stake or lost in order to disband the Taliban. Whatever you think you know about the wars that followed 9/11 I promise you, you really have no clue unless you lived it.
