Description

Courage is often enough to drive a soldier forward, to cause him to climb out of his foxhole and face enemy fire. But it takes a little more than courage to keep him going when every instinct dictates that he should do otherwise. This truth becomes self-evident when the men belonging to Recon Team Kilo, a Special Forces A-Team operating deep in hostile territory, are overwhelmed by indigenous forces. Without leadership and unit cohesion, the survivors struggle to stay faithful to their code of conduct in the face of brutal imprisonment and an uncertain future. An elite force, ready to place themselves in harm's way to save their own, is sent on a dangerous mission to rescue the POWs. They're lead by Lieutenant Colonel Harry Shaddock, whose men would follow him anywhere. His mission is to save fellow soldiers while putting his own in harm's way. As the families of the imprisoned soldiers learn that their loved ones are being killed off one by one, the operation becomes more dangerous than anyone had imagined. In order to triumph all must draw upon something from within. SOMETHING MORE THAN COURAGE.show more
