Mine has gotta be The Hunt For Bin Laden: Task Force Dagger byRobin Moore. It rshows the true story behind the Special Force takdown of the Taliban, and really shows a parellel to the Green Berets of today with there Northern Allience conterparts, and the Vietnam era Green Berets with their Montagnard guys.
A lot of you seem to have an interest in this book. You should know it is 99% Bullsh*t. Everything you read in that book was spoonfed to Moore by a convicted felon who doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. It's fiction, pure fiction and it's one book that isn't fit for the trash. Read it if you like, but understand it has no value whatsoever, and will not give you any real or factual insight into Special Forces, or anything that occured in A-Stan.

There are two more books, "The One that Got Away" and "Soldier 5," and a fourth book, written by someone who traced their route and investigated their claims. If you've read one of the books concerning B20, read the other three, you'll find them interesting.

The AAR is rather interesting, to say the least.
