This account is as accurate as I could make it, 7000 miles away and 8 years after the fact. Sources differed in their recollections, and particularly timelines. Not having been there, I have had to piece together the story as best I could.
There has been a great deal of controversy about Marcus Luttrell’s account in Lone Survivor. People who were not there have called his account into question, even calling him a liar. Some have even attempted to say, beyond all logic, that Ahmad Shah only had 8 to 10 fighters. This smacks of saying anything to puff up their own credentials and discredit the one man who lived to tell what happened on that mountain.
