"A thrilling action ride of a book" (The New York Times Book Review)–from Jerry Bruckheimer in theaters everywhere January 19, 2018–the New York Times bestselling, true-life account of a US Special Forces team deployed to dangerous, war-ridden Afghanistan in the weeks following 9⁄11.
Previously published as Horse Soldiers
, 12 Strong
is the dramatic account of a small band of Special Forces soldiers who secretly entered Afghanistan following 9
and rode to war on horses against the Taliban. Outnumbered forty to one, they pursued the enemy army across the mountainous Afghanistan terrain and, after a series of intense battles, captured the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. The bone-weary American soldiers were welcomed as liberators as they rode into the city. Then the action took a wholly unexpected turn.
During a surrender of six hundred Taliban troops, the Horse Soldiers were ambushed by the would-be POWs. Dangerously overpowered, they fought for their lives in the city’s immense fortress, Qala-i-Janghi, or the House of War. At risk were the military gains of the entire campaign: if the soldiers perished or were captured, the entire effort to outmaneuver the Taliban was likely doomed.
"A riveting story of the brave and resourceful American warriors who rode into Afghanistan after 9
and waged war against Al Qaeda" (Tom Brokaw), Doug Stanton’s account touches the mythic. The soldiers on horses combined ancient strategies of cavalry warfare with twenty-first-century aerial bombardment technology to perform a seemingly impossible feat. Moreover, their careful effort to win the hearts of local townspeople proved a valuable lesson for America’s ongoing efforts in Afghanistan. With "spellbinding…action packed prose…The book reads more like a novel than a military history…the Horse Soldier’s secret mission remains the US military’s finest moment in what has since arguably been a muddled war" (USA TODAY
