About this product
- DescriptionApril 2004. A year after Iraq's fall to Coalition forces, the country is wracked by brutal insurgency and hurtling toward the abyss of eth-sectarian disintegration. Covert operator Conr Rourke arrives in Baghdad with a clear mission: recover a teammate (and close friend) who has been captured by jihadists. Conr, a veteran of the Afghanistan war, plunges into the strange world of the Green Zone where he meets a beautiful State Department analyst with whom he falls in love. As the weeks become a blur of interrogations and commando raids, and his dangerous search moves from Baghdad to the mountains of Kurdistan, he begins to question whether or t his newfound love will survive the country's blood-soaked terrain. As he races to rescue his friend, the tour awaiting him will be more violent and unexpected than even he could have imagined. Peopled with a rogues gallery of Special Forces operators, Dusk Visors offers a fast-paced and authoritative account of an elite and shadowy brand of combat. Absorbing and impressively detailed, this book provides a fascinating lens on the Iraq war.
