Full Synopsis
On April 6th. 2003, twenty-six Green Berets, including those of Sergeant First Class Frank Antenori's Special Forces A-Team (call sign Roughneck Nine One), fought a vastly superior force at a remote crossroads near the village of Debecka, Iraq. The enemy unit had battle tanks and 150 well-trained, well-equipped and well-commanded soldiers. The Green Berets stopped the enemy advance then fought them until only a handful of Iraqi survivors finally fled the battlefield.

In the process, the Nine One encountered hordes of news media and at the peak of the fight, a US Navy F-14 dropped a 500-pound bomb into the middle of a group of supporting Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, killing and wounding dozens.

Roughneck Nine One is the never-before-told, unsanitized story of the fight for the crossroads at Debecka, Iraq, and a unique inside look at a Special Forces A-team as it recruits and organizes, trains for combat, and eventually fights a battle against a huge opposing force in Iraq.


"A gripping account.... A notable contribution to the literature on both the Iraq war and the capabilities of special-ops units." ---Booklist

"A gritty inside look at a Special Forces team at work." ---Publishers Weekly

"A powerful no-holds barred, first-hand account.... Captures the professionalism, comradeship, self-sacrifice, and courage that define the heart and soul of America's finest warriors." ---Tom Yarborough, author of Da Nang Diary
