"This Manas Army" follows one extraordinary young manas
transformation from Ivy League student to twenty-first-century
warrior. Soldier X vividly brings to life his journey through ROTC
training, the grueling trials of the elite Ranger School, and into
the treacherous terrain of the Shah-e-Kot Valley in Afghanistan.
There he leads his men to root out the hardcore remnants of Osama
bin Ladenas forces, and must confront and kill an Al Qaeda fighter.
On his return to the United States, Soldier X must face how media
coverage has distorted public perception of the war back home as he
seeks to make peace with the man he had become.
In the tradition of Tim OaBrienas "If I Die in a Combat Zone,
This Manas Army" is a gripping story of a young manas introduction
to the horrors of war, reported with brutal honesty and compelling
insight. By turns harrowing and inspiring, it is the first account
of combat from a new generation that is rising to confront the
grave threat that faces our civilization and our way of life.
