What started out as a routine mission changed when two 82nd Airborne Paratroopers tragically drowned in the Bala Murghab River while trying to retrieve vital supplies from an air drop that had gone terribly wrong. In this one moment, the focus and purpose of the friendly forces at Forward Operating Base Todd, where Team 8222 was assigned, was forever altered as a massive clearing operation was initiated to break the Taliban’s stranglehold on the valley and recover the bodies.
From close-quarters firefights in Afghan villages to capturing key terrain from the Taliban in the unforgiving Afghan winter, this intense and personal story depicts the brave actions and sacrifices of MSOT 8222. Listeners will understand the hopelessness of being pinned down under a hail of enemy gunfire and the quake of the earth as a 2000 lb. guided bomb levels a fortified Taliban fighting position. A powerful and moving story of Marine Operators doing what they do best, Level Zero Heroes brings to life the mission of these selected few that fought side-by-side in Afghanistan, in a narrative as action-acked and emotional as anything to emerge from the Special Operations community contribution to the Afghan War.

Worst narrator ever
This is such a great story but the narrator killed it. Way over acted with his tough guy talk. I had to buy the hard copy since I couldn't listen to this D Bag narrator anymore. This would be five stars if it weren't for him.

Disappointingly hard to listen to
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Somebody who hasn't read much of this genre
What do you think your next listen will be?
Something narrated by Scott Brick
What didn’t you like about Peter Berkrot’s performance?
The "good old boy"is overdone and robs the story of credibility
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Level Zero Heroes?
12 minute prologue, Nevada Desert. I.e. Everything I have read so far
Any additional comments?
It is probably a great story but the narration is a turn off
