Eagle Down: The Last Special Forces Fighting the Forever War
In 2015, the White House claimed triumphantly that “the longest war in American history” was over. But, for some, it was just the beginning of a new war, fought by Special Operations Forces, with limited resources, little governmental oversight and contradictory orders. With big picture insight and on-the-ground grit, Donati follows individual Soldiers and shares the stories of the impossible choices they must make. Through successive policy directives under the Obama and Trump administrations, America has come to rely almost entirely on Special Forces; Eagle Down is a riveting account of the heroism, sacrifice and tragedy experienced by those who fought in America’s longest war.
