I stopped reading at 2/3. The author continuously repeated information and much of the writing style was amateurish. The story was okay, but because of the order the author chose to present the information,  there wasn't a lot to look forward to by reading to the end.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing an ARC copy of the book. The opinions expressed above are my own.

Travesty of Justice by Don Brown was received direct from the publisher.  Firstly, I am a US military veteran of numerous wars, skirmishes, police actions, whatever you want to call them.  Further, I was never a fobbit, I left the safety inside the wire often.  Some will know what fobbit means, most fobbits will not.  I say this as an experienced combat troop knowing what ROE means and how it affects those outside the wire.  The ROE that deployed military members were subjected to under the Obama regime, often times, made them sitting ducks.  Further, the non politicized troops and the troops with common sense, were very weary of the US government having their backs, as this LT learned.  I am not going to go into this authors opinion on things, as I have seen other documents that go directly against what is written here.  That being said, overall I would agree with the LT''s actions and wonder how several others like him got prosecuted while others like Bradley Manning and Berghdahl got off.  Those without blinders see why. If you, or someone you buy gifts for, is interested in combat zones, red tape or military criminal justice, certainly give this book a read. Lastly, remember, in all situations, ”it is better to be judged by 12 than carried by six.”

Thank you NETGALLEY for an ARC that fired me up!!!

Don Brown lays out the facts of today's Army, an army full of great soldiers but few real leaders and this  shameful event is another case in point. The book is impossible to put down as you learn the story of an American hero, Lt. Clint Lorance; but after you read the book you come to the staggering conclusion that he was just trying to lead in a time when the President and CINC did nothing to win. 

If you are a VET you will nod as you read how 'military justice' isn;t and the edge gets dulled and sullied while those in the 'rear with the gear' get the bennies!

Great nations/armies are not murdered, they commit suicide; here it is!  Great book.
