In Mayhem 337, Rickard, an embedded U.S. Army Infantry Combat Advisor, powerfully recounts his experiences during a nine-month period of intense combat deep in the mountains of Eastern Afghanistan. His graphic account guides you through fierce combat from the streets of Khost City, to deadly mountain warfare while based at an austere combat outpost. He vividly describes the sights and sounds of battle as well as the heartbreaking aftermath of fallen comrades. From IED laden roads to air assault missions and hostage standoffs, Rickard's story leaves nothing to the imagination.
