In 2010, the U.S. Army Special Operations Command created Cultural Support Teams, a pilot program to put women on the battlefield alongside Green Berets, Army Rangers and Navy SEALs on sensitive missions in Afghanistan. The idea was that women could access places and people that had remained out of reach, and could build relationships-- woman to woman-- in ways that male soldiers in a conservative, Islamic country could not. Lemmon reveals how these pioneers earned professional acceptance from grizzled Special Operations warriors and illuminates the very human stakes of their battlefield successes. Transporting readers into the little-known world of the CSTs, a community of fierce women bound together by valor, danger, and the desire to serve, this is a gripping combat narrative and a testament to the unbreakable bond of friendship and love born of war.
