The chronicle of Folsom s command of 3rd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, The Cutting Edge, and his harrowing deployment to Afghanistan s volatile Sangin District presents a deeper look into the complexities and perils of modern counterinsurgency operations in America s longest war. Charged with the daunting task of pacifying a region with a long history of violence and instability, Folsom and his Marines struggled daily to wage a dynamic campaign against the shadowy enemy force that held Sangin s population firmly in its grip. With peace and stability always teetering on the brink of collapse, the Marines of The Cutting Edge confronted their own mortality as they conducted endless patrols through Sangin s minefields while fighting to win the hearts and minds of the Afghan villagers. No other books have been published from the perspective of a Marine infantry battalion commander in Afghanistan. It was Folsom s job, as the unit commander, to lead his Marines under impossible circumstances.

BOOK NEWS: Where Youth and Laughter Go: With "The Cutting Edge" in Afghanistan

By Lt. Seth W. This is the third book by Lt. Folsom concerning his experiences fighting the War on Terror. The author focuses on both the big and small picture. We are treated to an examination of the overall problem 3 rd Battalion faces and the on the ground tactics he and his men employee. Perhaps the most interesting part of the book is the first 50 pages.

SETH W. This is the textbook of agonizing combat leadership, when the task is beyond the battalions control. Nation-building was a mistake that our policymakers and generals refused to admit. Only grit, love for each other and self-pride kept our grunts going. Here is the raw, unflinching truth all infantry battalions knowthe story of the American fighting man in Afghanistan. A visceral, first-hand account of Marines at war in the Taliban sanctuary of Helmand Province and of the grinding, brutal reality of combat, command, and counterinsurgency. A timeless classic in the tradition of Bing Wests The Village.

Seth Folsom. Enough time has passed—if just barely—for us to have committed the sin of citizenship and forgotten a war. The narrator is stoic.
