Gospel According to First Squad
Tom Burmesters Gospel According to First Squad tells the story of men at war in a distant land, and the stories they tell to get themselves home.
At a small U.S. Army outpost at the mouth of Afghanistans deadly Korengal Valley, a squad of battle-hardened soldiers anxiously await their imminent return to the States. When a human terrain specialist assigned to First Squad reveals a fanatically religious ideology, everyone takes a side. The cracks widen as First Squad gears up for a last minute, unexpected patrol into a hotly contested remote village enshrouded in the fog of war. In such a confusing fog, wonders a captain assigned to investigate the disastrous patrol, how is it that every surviving member of the squad tells exactly the same heroic story of that fateful final patrol?
