Jessica Donati was recently a guest on SOFREP Radio where she talked about her recent book and her years of work in Afghanistan.

Ms. Donati wasn’t a journalist looking for a quick story spending a week in-country, getting a juicy tip, and then becoming an instant expert on everything Afghanistan. In fact, she was the exact opposite.

She spent four years there as the former Kabul Bureau Chief for The Wall Street Journal. She embedded with the Afghan Commandos and was close to the Army Special Forces Green Berets. In her recently released book, she tells their story. 

Eagle Down, The Last Special Forces Fighting the Forever War was a compelling, page-turning if at times very disturbing read. It pulls the veil off of the lie sold to the American public during that time that there “were no more boots on the ground” and that we were “no longer at war” in Afghanistan.
