A REIMAGINING OF THE MASTERPIECE “SEVEN SAMURAI” TOLD THROUGH THE LENS OF THE AFGHANISTAN WAR.
Five paramilitary Navy SEAL operators defend the residents of a remote mountain farming village in Afghanistan from attacks by marauding Taliban. Led by the war-weary Hector, the operators and villagers form mutual bonds of honor and respect leading up to a climactic battle where the “Lions of Panjshir” are desperately outnumbered.
Based on a story concept by OscarÂ®-winning screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, The Wolverine) and co-written by founding member of SEAL Team VI, Dan Capel, and New York Times best-selling author Mark Long (The Silence of Our Friends), this high-caliber, explosive war drama brings military authenticity through its creative team, as well as through the sealed envelope of printed artifacts from within the world of the story, such as maps, memos, letters home, etc., giving added dimension to the reading experience.
Includes an in-depth interview with creator Mark Long, as well as a foreword by Richard Marcinko, first Commanding Officer of SEAL Team VI and Red Cell, and author of the New York Times best-selling book, Rogue Warrior.
