On a moonless night just weeks after September 11, 2001, U.S. Special Forces team ODA 574 infiltrates the mountains of southern Afghanistan with a seemingly impossible mission: to foment a tribal revolt and force the Taliban to surrender. Armed solely with the equipment they can carry on their backs, shockingly scant intelligence, and their mastery of guerrilla warfare, Captain Jason Amerine and his men have no choice but to trust their only ally: a little-known Pashtun statesman named Hamid Karzai who has returned from exile and is being hunted by the Taliban as he travels the countryside raising a militia.

The Only Thing Worth Dying For chronicles the most important mission in the early days of the Global War on Terror, when the men on the ground knew little about the enemy - and their commanders in Washington knew even less. With unprecedented access to surviving members of ODA 574, key war planners, and Karzai himself, award-winning author Eric Blehm cuts through the noise of politicians and high-level military officials to narrate, for the first time, a story of uncommon bravery and terrible sacrifice, intimately exposing the realities of unconventional warfare and nation-building in Afghanistan that continue to shape the region today.

    " ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE READ ABOUT SPECIAL FORCES AND CIA INVOLVEMENT IN, AFGHANISTAN! "

    " Great book looking at the opening days of a few boots on the ground in Afghanistan. Capt. Amerine is a hero in the truest sense, I put him up there with men like Major Winters from Easy Company in WWII. "

    " An amazing story. A little difficult to follow at times. Lots of miliatry jargon. Coming to the last few chapters which tell about what happened to these men and the response to try and save them left me angry, sad, and thankful at the same time. Well worth the read. "

    " A very detailed look at the early days of the invasion of Afghanistan and what a few courageous Americans had to go thru to protect Hamid Karzai and his role in the country's future "
