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.

Documents the controversial April 2003 battle between Green Beret forces and Iraqi soldiers near the village of Debecka, a battle that was marked by extensive news media coverage and the navy bombing of supporting Peshmerga fighters, in an account that offers insight into the recruiting process and organization of the U.S. Special Forces.
