Book Announcement: Horse Soldiers

New Book coming out next month: Horse Soldiers: The Extraordinary Story of a Band of US Soldiers Who Rode to Victory in Afghanistan, by Doug Stanton, describing the operations in Afghanistan by U.S. special operations and the Northern Alliance horse mounted forces against the Taliban.  Interesting how this all comes together with the final chapter of my book, and the last part of the Corb Lund song of the same title. 

Good thing I didn’t choose Horse Soldiers as my title –but I didn’t want to compete with the Randy Steffen classic series of reference books by the same name –not to mention the John Ford movie mentioned in a previous blog.

Anyway, it looks like an interesting book and if I get a chance to get to it this summer I will post a review.  Also, Disney has bought the movie rights and so we might see it on the big screen in a year or two.  In the meantime, check out the PBS interviews which was one of the sources I used in my writing on the subject.
