Description :  A <i>New York Times</i> Best seller!<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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. <br />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.

Description :  The sequel to <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>Level Zero Heroes</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>Level Zero Heroes</i>, Michael Golembesky's bestselling account of Marine Special Operations Team 8222 in Bala Murghab, Afghanistan, was just the beginning for these now battle-hardened special operations warriors.<br />The unforgiving Afghan winter has settled upon the 22 men of Marine Special Operations Team 8222, callsign Dagger 22, in the remote and hostile river valley of Bala Murghab, Afghanistan. The Taliban fighters in the region would have liked nothing more than to once again go dormant and rest until the new spring fighting season began. No chance of that—this winter would be different.<br />Along with Afghan and International Security Forces (NATO), the Marines of Dagger 22 continued their fight throughout the harsh winter to shape the battlefield before the Afghan ground began to thaw. From one firefight to the next, the noose began to tighten around the village of Daneh Pasab and the Taliban command cell operating there. On April 6, 2010, a ground force consisting of U.S. Army Special Forces, Afghan Commandos and Marine Corps special operations conducted a night assault to destroy the heavily entrenched Taliban force, breaking their grip on the valley and stopping the spring offensive before it even began.<br />But nothing in Bala Murghab comes easily as combat operations wear on the operators of Dagger 22 as they lean on each other once again in order to complete their mission in one of the most brutal environments on earth.

Description :  „Marines” opisuje dramatyczne doświadczenia 8222 Jednostki Piechoty Morskiej. Walka o wyzwolenie afgańskiego Bala Murghab spod rządów talibów trwała sześć miesięcy. Przez pół roku żołnierze koalicji zrzucili tam więcej bomb niż główne odziały amerykańskiej armii, piechota morska i lotnictwo w Faludży, gdzie rozegrała się największa bitwa wojny w Iraku.<br /><br /> Golembesky opowiada o żołnierzach, którym przyszło zmagać się nie tylko z talibami, ale i z machiną amerykańskiej biurokracji blokującą ofensywy. Autor, który był naocznym świadkiem wydarzeń, uświadamia czytelnikowi, jak ważna jest współpraca żołnierzy i wywiadu. Pełen szacunku dla walczących opisuje bohaterstwo, ale nie stroni od ukazywania przykładów tchórzostwa. Dowodzi, jak tragiczne w skutkach mogą być kompromisy i układy z wrogiem.<br /><br /> Historia z Bala Murghab to wojna afgańska w miniaturze, która na naszych oczach staje się symbolem nowoczesnych interwencji zbrojnych.
