Roughneck Nine-One : The Extraordinary Story of a Special Forces A-Team at War (Reprint) (Paperback)
about this item
On April 6th, 2003, twenty-six Green Berets, including those of Sergeant 1st Class Frank Antenori's Special Forces A-team (call sign Roughneck Nine-One), confronted a vastly superior force--one that included battle tanks and more than 150 well-trained, well-equipped, and well-commanded soldiers--at a remote crossroads near the small village of Debecka, Iraq. The rest is history…
Along the way, they endured a U.S .Navy F-14 dropping a 500-pound bomb on supporting Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, the ever-present threat of WMDs, and countless other deadly obstacles.
This is the never-before-told, unsanitized story of how one Special Forces A-team recruited and organized, trained and eventually fought--and won--a legendary conflict that will influence American military doctrine for years to come.
