Eric Blehm, author of the award-winning The Last Season, is back with another true adventure story, The Only Thing Worth Dying For. Set in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, The Only Thing Worth Dying For chronicles the untold story of the team of Green Berets led by Captain Jason Amerine that conquered the Taliban and helped bring Hamid Karzai to power in Afghanistan. In the tradition of Black Hawk Down, The Only Thing Worth Dying For is, in the words of former Congressman Charlie Wilson (from Charlie Wilson's War), "the one book you must read if you have any hope of understanding what our fine American soldiers are up against in Afghanistan."

Couldn't put it down
I got this book as the sample with no prior knowledge of this book, but a slight familiarity with ODA 574's story.
After the sample, I couldn't put it down. I took the plunge to buy the book and spent a very enjoyable afternoon reading it in my backyard.
tl;dr fun read if you like military nonfiction.
Gripping from start to end
One of the better all around books about the war on terror I have read. Gives you the gut busting reality of war and just how crazy it can be.
If you are considering this book, stop wasting time and just buy it! Incredible story. Could not put it down. Makes you appreciate our special forces soldiers even more and makes you understand how difficult and dangerous their duties really are.
