It takes a tough mind-set to be a successful sniper, to be able to dig in for days on your own as you wait for your target, to stay calm on a battlefield when you yourself have become the target the enemy most wants to take out. Craig Harrison has what it takes, and in November 2009 in Afghanistan, under intense pressure, he saved the lives of his comrades with the longest confirmed sniper kill - 2,475 metres, the length of 25 football pitches. In this unflinching autobiography, Craig catapults us into the heat of the action as he describes his active service in the Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan and gives heart-stopping accounts of his sniper ops as he fought for his life on the rooftops of Basra and the barren hills of Helmand Province. Craig was blown up by an IED in Afghanistan and left battling severe PTSD. After his identity was revealed in the press, he also had to cope with al-Qaeda threats against him and his family. For Craig, the price of heroism has been devastatingly high. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Jameson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/macm/000910/bk_macm_000910_sample.mp3.

A provocative blueprint for how the United States can successfully disengage from failing wars without compromising its core values or interests. For a century the United States steadily accumulated a string of military triumphs. But since 1945 the onslaught of failures and stalemates in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan has exposed the country's inability to change course after battlefield setbacks - with grave consequences for thousands of American soldiers and our allies. The Right Way to Lose a War provocatively explains how America can draw failed campaigns to a close without compromising its core values through three specific steps - surge, talk, and leave. The Right Way to Lose a War is an essential guidebook for life in an era of unwinnable conflicts, an audiobook made necessary not only by Iraq and Afghanistan but the future quagmires that may yet come.
