Book Corner - Started and finished reading: Roberts Ridge

Non Fiction
Roberts Ridge: A story of courage and sacrifice on Takur Ghar Mountain,

The cover of the book says it all "Impossible to put down" James
Bradley. And true to this, I read this book over the weekend. Unlike
the previous fiction books that I've read this is a true to life
gripping story and from our time.

I don't want to go into to much detail about the book, but basically it
covers the a Special Forces operation in which a Navy SEAL (Neil
Roberts) fell from a helicopter and the ensuing attempts to rescue him,
along with much behind the scenes activity.

The book has a close connection to me as Neil Roberts was living in
Virginia Beach at the time and the media covered his situation constantly.

Definitely worth reading!
