Abstract:

Bestselling author Robert D. Kaplan takes listeners inside the American Airforce, Navy, and Army in this companion to his groundbreaking Imperial Grunts. In this extraordinary audiobook Kaplan closely examines the American military and its missions around the world. Provided with unprecedented access, Kaplan embarked on a rollicking journey from destroyers off the coast of Indonesia, to submarines in the central Pacific, to training grounds in Alaska, and beyond. This riveting audiobook not only provides a ground-level portrait of the Global War on Terrorism, but also conveys the vast scope of America's military commitments, much of which rarely receives news coverage. Now listeners can experience these operations first-hand, from the point of view of the troops themselves.
