As part of an elite special operations unit at the fighting edge of the Global War on Terrorism, Nicholas Moore spent over a decade with the US Army's 75th Ranger Regiment on the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq. In this compelling biography, a detailed narrative of gruelling life on the ground combines with accounts of some of the most dramatic search and rescue operations of the period to tell the true story of life on the line in the War on Terror. Charting his rise from private to senior non-commissioned officer, this title follows Moore as he embarks on a series of dangerous deployments, engaging in brutal street combat and traversing inhospitable terrain in pursuit of Taliban fighters and Iraq's Most Wanted. Including never-before-published first-hand accounts of high-profile special operations missions including the tense rescue of Private First Class Jessica Lynch and the search and rescue mission for US Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, Moore recounts, in vivid detail, the realities of life on the front line.

Reviews for Run to the Sound of the Guns: The True Story of an American Ranger at War in Afghanistan and Iraq

The riveting true story of a ranger taking the fight to the enemies of our country. A gripping account of the journey of a Ranger from a private to a platoon sergeant in the 75th Ranger Regiment. Nick Moore tells the story of a band of American sons who willingly make it their choice to run to the sound of guns. Ugly, brutal, and straightforward, Nick Moore's story is worth your time. Our nation has little knowledge of the brave men and women who have kept the wolf at bay and this book gives us a glimpse of the unsung leadership and sacrifice of the modern U.S. Army Ranger. The searing account of Nicholas Moore's decade-plus service as a Ranger. The firefights are close-up and personal: You can literally smell the cordite, blood and fear. * Rhodesian Light Infantry and Author of Fireforce * In this day and age, few of us can begin to comprehend the determination and sacrifice of the modern warrior. Every American should read this book. * Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within the Cartel *
