This is a great book to read. It was based on a true story about a Man named Patrick Tillman. Patrick played in the NFL and after 9/11 happend he gave up his 3.8 million dollar contract to enlist in the army. Patrick later died during an ambush that had occured while he was in afghanastan. Some people think he died by a accidental friendly fire. This was a great book and I would reccomend it to anyone who likes non fiction storys or stories that have to do with the military.
