This New York Times bestseller in hardcover edition is a bran-new book and nicely wrapped with protective book-wrapper. The original new book is sold at usual price RM119.03 (Hardcover). Now here Only at RM26. In Level Zero Heroes, Michael Golembesky follows the members of U.S. Marine Special Operations Team 8222 on their assignment to the remote and isolated Taliban stronghold known as Bala Murghab as they conduct special operations in an effort to break the Taliban's grip on the Valley. What started out as a routine mission changed when two 82nd Airborne Paratroopers tragically drowned in the Bala Murghab River while trying to retrieve vital supplies from an air drop that had gone terribly wrong. In this one moment, the focus and purpose of the friendly forces at Forward Operating Base Todd, where Team 8222 was assigned, was forever altered as a massive clearing operation was initiated to break the Taliban's stranglehold on the valley and recover the bodies. From close-quarters firefights in Afghan villages to capturing key-terrain from the Taliban in the unforgiving Afghan winter, this intense and personal story depicts the brave actions and sacrifices of MSOT 8222. Readers will understand the hopelessness of being pinned down under a hail of enemy gunfire and the quake of the earth as a 2000 lb. guided bomb levels a fortified Taliban fighting position. A powerful and moving story of Marine Operators doing what they do best, Level Zero Heroes brings to life the mission of these selected few that fought side-by-side in Afghanistan, in a narrative as action-packed and emotional as anything to emerge from the Special Operations community contribution to the Afghan War. Michael Golembesky breaks fresh ground in showing the outside world an inside look at the Marine Raiders through LEVEL ZERO HEROES, which discusses a deployment to the deadly Bala Murghab region of Afghanistan, near the Turkmenistan border, where Taliban forces would rest for the winter and acquire new skills to use against Coalition forces. Golembesky is no stranger to breaking new ground, being one of a new generation of enlisted Marines qualified as a Joint Terminal Attack Controller. This skill comes into play in the narrative quickly, as Golembesky is required to stay up for days on end, monitoring the JTAC frequencies and running air support for the Marines and the 82nd Airborne troops in the AO. It's also a raw read. Golembesky does not hold back on his opinions on General McChrystal's rules of engagement, or his thoughts on battalion commander Professional 6 electing to schmooze with the enemy rather than wage war effectively. One particular incident near the end of the book is guaranteed to enrage any person who has served downrange and who has been hamstrung by overly restrictive rules of engagement. If you're looking for what goes into creating a Marine Raider, this is not the book you are looking for, as the Raider Pipeline was not established at the time of writing and Golembesky was directly assigned to the unit due to his JTAC skills (which is a point of contention for the other Raiders, who were all veterans of the Reconnaissance Pipeline). However, if you are looking for what kind of man it takes to be a Marine Raider, the end result of the training and screening, this is definitely the book for you. Also, if you are looking to see what kind of difficulties our troops encountered in current-generation warfare, this is a must-read. Level Zero Heroes is gritty, raw, and without frills. It's a book befitting its special operations veteran author. Highly recommended.
