When Sean Parnell
returned from fighting for the US in Afghanistan, he wanted to honor the efforts of his platoon. So he wrote a book. He called it Outlaw Platoon
. That book was a runaway bestseller. The next book he wrote, Man of War,
jumped from memoir to fiction, but his mission was the same: to honor his comrades. In his latest thriller, All Out War
, book, Eric Steele addresses two fundamental questions: first, is the mission he's been given worth it? And second, is he free or is he a slave? Parnell caught up with Stratfor's Chief Security officer and host of Stratfor's "Pen and Sword" podcast, Fred Burton.
