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!

Now that the Doc Report has gone blog, I can do some neat things.
Case in point, I'm relaxing at the beach and this entry comes via my
Blackberry : ). But -hate typing on this thing!
