From the author of the award-winning "The Last Season" comes a one-of-a-kind war story that redefines our understanding of America’s early days in Afghanistan. "The Only Thing Worth Dying For" reveals, for the first time, the astonishing true story of the Special Forces A-team that helped conquer the Taliban in southern Afghanistan, and bring Hamid Karzai to power. In powerfully simple prose, Eric Blehm weaves together the unbelievable chain of events that intimately expose the realities of modern unconventional warfare and international politics during the critical months after the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.
