Product Description

A platoon of Marines and CIA operatives clash in a fight to the death with the drug lords and the Taliban, while in Washington, the president seeks a way out.

This authentic war story vividly displays how a warrior must replenish his own moral courage and not allow ambition to coarsen his sense of decency.

The Last Platoon explores firefights expertly told by a combat veteran. Listeners will feel like they have entered a strange, alien world as they hear, in great detail, how the Marines and Taliban clash, circle each other, probe for weakness, and clash again in primordial violence, neither side yielding. While intrigue and deceit play out at the higher levels, in Afghanistan's bright poppy fields only the killing instinct will decide the winner.
