Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Lt. Col. (Ret.) Nathan Sassaman's book Warrior King: The Triumph and Betrayal of an American Commander in Iraq, the startling and controversial memoir, written by one of the most prominent members of the U.S. fighting forces in Iraq.
NATHAN SASSAMAN graduated from West Point in 1985. In August 2003, when his patrol came under attack, Sassaman braved machine-gun and R.P.G. fire to drag one of his wounded soldiers from his vehicle and chased down the insurgents, killing or capturing all of them, earning himself a Bronze Star for valor in Iraq. He commanded the 1st Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment in Iraq from ’03 to ’04. He lives in Colorado. JOE LAYDEN is a New York Times bestselling author and award-winning journalist whose work has been honored by the New York Newspaper Publishers Association and the national Associated Press Sports Editors. He lives in Saratoga, NY.
