    I received this book through the Goodread's Giveaways Program. I didn't hate this book, but I didn't love this book either. I am sure there were a lot of stories to recount over a 35 year period of service, but I felt that the book lacked depth. For example, I would have loved to learn...

    This was a very fast read for me. I thought it was interesting and engaging and it held my attention; I did not want to put it down. I am not saying it was a "nail-biter" by any means, but it was fascinating to read about different 'events' in American history from his "unique" perspec...

    Lahidji came to America as a young man and join the US Army. His courage and language skills made him a valuable asset in the following years. Speaking of language, if you aren't used to being around soldiers, the f-bombs, etc that he drops may offend you. As a naturalized citizen,...

    A well-told account of Master Sergeant Lahidji's colorful life. Can't even imagine the level of racism he must have experienced from both sides of the table. My personal opinion is that the book unfortunately doesn't deeply capitalize on the differentiating factor it could have had...

    Changiz tells his story his story of being in the Special Forces serving his adopted country. Going up in Iran then imagrating to the US, he joins the army and becomes a Green Beret. He seen John Wayne's movie "The Green Berets" and that became his dream. He did not let his minimal e...

    Not a real great book. It's full of so many mis-spellings and poorly worded descriptions to be almost unreadable. Lots of inaccuracies for a longtime SF trooper. Editing seems non-existent. For example, simple references like "C-rations" come out "sea rations". 5th SF Group com...

    I enjoyed this book a great deal. It was interesting to read about the experiences of a man who served in every hot spot in the word since I graduated from high school. I found that he had some very interesting insights as to why these events rolled out the way they did. While he menti...

    An Iranian national who becomes a US special forces soldier. The first Muslim in Special Forces. The longest serving member of special forces. Fascinating story. He was in the Iranian Army for a while and came to the US before the Shah fell. He tried working different jobs with family ...

    Not sure exactly what I was expecting but this was a standard military memoir. Lahidji's career is long and storied and he was present for many incredible events. But if you've read a military memoir, there's nothing new here. Good if that's your thing. ...

    It was a great skim read. I didn't read every word due to the fact that 1)its military jargon 2) I don't need to know the technical name of a certain weapon. It was written like it was day by day however when you start putting the dates together you realize how long he was actually in ...

    proofread I'm guessing he left the actual writing to the author who apparently was in a hurry to get to publication. I dont know, but an SF NCO wouldn't address a 1st Sgt as sir, himself as 11 Bravo (18 Bravo; Weapons Specialist maybe?), or call an M203 a .203 Machine Gun as in one...
