We Stand Alone

By Roger Hill, Lynn Vincent (Electronic Book, 2014)
When Capt. Roger Hill and Dog Company were assigned to a remote outpost in Wardak, Afghanistan, the Province was known as a "model" area, for its relative peace. With only 89 men to secure an area the size of Connecticut, a spike in insurgency attacks meant that Dog Company was quickly outmanned in the region. With higher command refusing to send adequate supplies and soldiers, things take an even more dire turn when 12 Afghani contractors working in the base are discovered as being Al Qaeda spies.

Under military law, Capt. Hill had 96 hours to either gain confessions from the detainees, transfer them to a higher authority, or release them. With his command refusing to pick up the spies, Capt. Hill is faced with the terrible choice: act outside the bounds of military law to save his men, or follow the letter of military law and risk the lives of every man in Dog Company to save his career?

Using nonviolent means, Capt. Hill gains confessions from the detainees, and is shortly after charged with war crimes in violation of the Geneva Convention. The fight moves from the battlefield to the courtroom, as Capt. Hill, despite an appalling lack of evidence against him, is forced to defend himself against the same military he pledged his life to serve.

DOG COMPANY is the courageous story of survival, the tough decisions some are forced to make to protect others, and fighting for what you know is right.
