Product Description

For the first time, Army Ranger hero Nate Self tells his story. Self recounts the Roberts Ridge Rescue mission, the ferocious battles in Afghanistan, and the lone war of attrition that Nate Self has waged against post-traumatic stress disorder. This book will become a go-to book for understanding the long-term effects of the war on terror. Thousands of families are fighting this battle, and Nate Self opens up his whole life--tragedies, successes, failures, and a struggle with suicidal thoughts--to share the facts and to show how his family and his faith pulled him through.

  • They Go, so we don't have to
    Two Wars, by former Army Captain Nate Self is a hard hitting book on the battle of Takur Ghar aka Rescue on Roberts Ridge, and his fight against Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

    As the wife of a career military man, I lost the battle to tears while reading this book. Many scenes, graphic in nature during the battle, had me so choked up I could barely keep reading. Knowing how Julie Self felt on her end made it all that real for me.

    The book is also a huge look into the effects of PTSD on soldiers who have experienced combat where fellow soldiers and friends have died. But this time you get a look into the mind of the officer who commanded those men. A word of caution, language used in normal everyday military life was used in this book. Tyndale was kind enough to let the reader know beforehand.

    If you've never understood, been in the midst of it, or never had someone tell you what it's like, then I recommend this book for you. As my husband has said before, Veterans will not open up to civilians because we don't understand, but they will open up to other Veterans because they've been there. Once you get them to talk, they won't stop, this is their life, their horrors. Nate Self has opened the door for one and all to glimpse this inside track, and I commend him for standing up and giving all Vets and Military men and women a voice....more info
  • Incredile account of the Global War on Terror, leadership, and dealing with the emotions of war
    This book is an incredible account of an amazing man and his journey through life, the battefield, and coming home from war. I could not recommend a book more strongly. It was impossible to set this book down once I began reading it. The author is an extremely talented writer who opens himself up in a very revealing way to tell this intense story. Everyone who reads this book will come away with an enhanced understanding of the global war on terror, the emotions felt by the Soldiers and Families involved, and the power of God to shape our lives through difficult circumstances....more info
  • Wonderful Book
    This is a wonderful book of a true solider being transparent with his feelings and emotions from war. It was a book I did not want to put down! I think we often times forget how much emotional trauma soliders go through and this is a great reminder to be praying for them as they fight for our freedom and to also pray for their emotional health when they return home. Thank you Nate for bearing your soul and I know helping so many others out there who have read your book!...more info
  • Thanks for Sharing
    Nate,

    Thank you for sharing. You have truly honored the Soldiers with whom you served. I am sure that they are proud of you and have been impacted significantly by your story, example, and leadership -- just as each person who reads this book will be. You have truly been through a challenging and heroic time. You are an example for others to follow.

    Your words in Two Wars are more than a combination of letters and your book is more than the pages, binding, and cover that comprise it -- it is a story of rescuing and being rescued. I was truly challenged to think about the parallel actions of terrorists throughout your development as a cadet and junior officer. So many different events are vital to shaping how we think, act, and live each day. The historical representations throughout the book are fresh and exciting - thank you for making the effort to incorporate history and research into an already amazing story.

    Thank you for sharing and being open to help others. This story is real and it spoke volumes to me. Your story is vivid and clear but shows the complexity of combat - the desire to go, fight, and win wars but the pain and lasting mark that it leaves on our heroes. ...more info
  • Powerful and Applicable
    Nate Self is an incredible man, a true American hero. If my own sons enter the military some day, my prayer is that they will have leaders like Nate. His strength, valor, and faith are remarkable. He faced severe challenges both on the battlefield and later at home. This book details those challenges, on both fronts, and provides inspiration to anyone facing hard times, not just soldiers and vets. One can see through him and his account the power of the human spirit. I knew his story well before reading this book, yet was still absolutely blown away. ...more info

  • Blown Away
    This book never was set down again once I started reading Nate's story on what occurred on a far off mountain in Afghanistan. His story was so revealing of his inner thoughts and choices made. I was so touched Nate's courage to hold nothing back in his book. Nate is a wonderful example to all of us who are not in anyway associated with the military....more info
