TOP SECRET

America's New Band of Brothers

Who says American soldiers can’t fight a guerrilla war? Horse Soldiers, a new book by Doug Stanton, chronicles the top-secret U.S. military effort in Afghanistan right after 9/11—when U.S. Army Special Forces and CIA operatives snuck into Taliban territory on horseback. According to USA Today, the book reads more like a narrative than a history book, and recalls great military reads like Band of Brothers and Black Hawk Down.
