Mayhem 337: Memoir of a Combat Advisor in Afghanistan by Chad Rickard
“Gritty, graphic, and real.” Winner of several major book awards! Senior Infantry Sergeant Chad Rickard takes you through a harrowing tour as an embedded infantry advisor to the Afghan National Army. A veteran of numerous combat tours with the U.S. Army, Rickard faced his ultimate challenge in Khost Province Afghanistan as he battled Haqqani Taliban in 2009. Often outnumbered, his team skillfully directed artillery and close air support to even the odds and inflict great damage upon their enemies. From large-scale mountain warfare, to close quarters battle on the streets of Khost City, his memoir leaves nothing to the imagination.
