Following up on Jake Tapper's The Outpost, Former Staff Sergeant Clinton Romesha offers his sobering first hand account of the 2009 attack on Combat Outpost Keating. A tactical and strategic nightmare, COP Keating was considered a death trap by those who served there. Located in a river valley with steep mountains on all sides and no practical, reliable means of resupply/reinforcement, Romesha and the rest of his unit fulfilled their commitment to man the outpost. COP Keating's weaknesses were brought to the forefront one October morning when hundreds of Taliban insurgents attacked in concert. A thorough, blow by blow, minute by minute recounting. ~ Reviewed by Nate George
