OFFICIAL TIE-IN TO THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE 12 STRONG, STARRING CHRIS HEMSWORTH‘Spellbinding true-life story . . . Reminiscent of Mark Bowden’s Black Hawk Down’ USA Today 12 Strong is the dramatic account of a small band of Special Forces soldiers who secretly entered Afghanistan following 9/11 and rode to war on horseback against the Taliban.

Outnumbered forty to one, they pursued the enemy across the mountainous terrain and captured the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. The bone-weary American soldiers were welcomed as liberators, and the streets thronged with Afghans overjoyed that the Taliban regime had been overthrown.

Then the action took a wholly unexpected turn. During a surrender of six hundred Taliban troops, the Horse Soldiers were ambushed.

Dangerously overpowered, they fought for their lives in the city’s immense fortress, Qala-i-Janghi, or the House of War. At risk were the military gains of the entire campaign: if the soldiers were captured, their courageous effort to outmanoeuvre the Taliban was likely doomed . . .
