Following Dostum's departure, Nelson plans to continue operating against the Taliban with his Americans and the few Afghan fighters remaining with them.
Encountering a large force of Al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters and armored vehicles, ODA , rejoined by Diller and his element, uses air support to eliminate many of the fighters and most of the armor, but are discovered and attacked.
Spencer is critically injured by a suicide bomber, and the team is about to be overrun under heavy Taliban and Al-Qaeda pressure when Dostum returns with his forces.
Carrying out the U. Army's first cavalry charge of the 21st century, the American and Northern Alliance forces disperse the Taliban and al-Qaeda , and Dostum tracks down and kills Razzan.
After Spencer is medevaced , Nelson and Dostum continue to Mazar-i-Sharif but find Atta Muhammad has beaten them there.
Against expectations, Dostum and Muhammad meet peacefully and put aside their differences. Impressed by Nelson and the Americans' efforts, Dostum gives Nelson his prized riding crop and tells him that he will always consider Nelson a brother and fellow fighter, at the same time bidding him remember that Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires.
Spencer ultimately survives, and all 12 soldiers of ODA return home after 23 days of almost continuous fighting in Afghanistan. The film's penultimate moment shows a photo of the Horse Soldier Statue at the World Trade Center in New York City , based on the soldiers of ODA and their victory in the early stages of the response to the September 11th attacks, dedicated to all United States Special Forces.
The film then ends with a photo of the actual members of ODA , in combat fatigues, upon whom 12 Strong was based. On December 2, , it was announced that producer Jerry Bruckheimer had taken out the script by Ted Tally and rewritten by Peter Craig with Nicolai Fuglsig attached to direct, which was bought by Walt Disney Pictures in for Bruckheimer, based on Doug Stanton's non-fiction book Horse Soldiers.
Special Forces team. Marine Captain. Principal photography began in early January in New Mexico.

The films postscript reads as follows: "Against overwhelming odds, all twelve members of the U. Army Special Forces ODA survived their mission.
The capture of Mazar-i-Sharif by the Horse Soldiers and their counterparts is one of the US military's most stunning achievements.
Military planners predicted it would take two years. Task Force Dagger did it in three weeks. Al Qaeda considers this to be their worst defeat.
Because their mission was classified, the men of Special Forces ODA returned home to their everyday lives with no fanfare or public acknowledgment of the near impossible mission they completed.
In , General Dostum became Vice President of Afghanistan. Dostum and Mitch Nelson remain close friends to this day. In , to honor their extraordinary heroism, a statue of a Horse Soldier was dedicated at the World Trade Center site.
Edit Did You Know? Trivia John Wayne viewed this as a film that would allow him to funnel some of the profits into his own pet project, The Alamo , which he was already in the process of casting and producing.

Phil Secord. How did an editor miss this? The arrows bulldozed through miles of sand, scree, rock, pomegranate, blue chicory and sweet acacia, pine tree and popular, over riverbeds, up cliffsides, across forlorn, twilit plateaus, and kept pushing for the horizon, where at night the stars would come up out of the singed cauldron of the autumn night and wheel overhead and smear the sky with ancient phosphorescence.
Why did he draw it? Did he draw on a map? I didn't understand what the author was trying to convey. Just as strange is this sentence on page "Twenty-four hours later, he stepped off in the dark at K2, in Uzbekistan, the sky engorged, oozing the milk of a new starlight.
On page , we are told that Herat is "about sixty miles west of Mazar", when the map opposite page 1 shows it is over miles! Then, on page we are told that "General Dostum would afford them safe passage to the nearby ancient city of Herat, east of Mazar".
So now Herat is east of Mazar? Stanton also says "Chechnyans" instead of "Chechens" The book also suffers from layman's mistakes--such as calling a C as a "jet" ; referring to an AC as a tanker when the proper designation is KC AC is the Spectre gunship version.
One misleading theme of this book is that the "Horse Soldiers" ODAs and managed to defeat the Taliban and "liberate Afghanistan" against all odds.
Yeah, except for the fact that there were, like, 15 other ODAs involved in the entire campaign! And that the Horse Soldiers' only objective was Mazar-e Sharif!
Page "Nelson looked around. These twelve guys on this helicopter comprised the entire American fighting force striking back at bin Laden.
It was just them, he realized. Them alone. Just sayin'. Feb 14, Mike rated it really liked it Shelves: unowned , military , afghanistan. Stanton documents the actions of U.
Special Forces soldiers who entered Afghanistan in October with the mission of assisting Northern Alliance forces in their battle against the Taliban.
The description of 21st Century horse cavalry charges alone are worth reading the book for. Besides the stories of the men involved Stanton also documents the activities of John Walker Lindh.
The book culminates in the riot at Qala-i-Jangi where Lindh was captured and Mike Spann became the first U.
The epilogue explains how it was then lost when the U. In one case he wrote about something Mike Spann was thinking shortly before he was killed, however from the time he had these "thoughts" until his death a few minutes later, he didn't speak to anyone.
While in all likelihood Stanton used these for narrative effect, it does make me question what else he may have invented.
Regardless, a good book well worth reading. Sep 25, Wayland Smith rated it liked it Shelves: marvelchallenge. The first part of it was scrambling a small group of Special Forces soldiers to go to Afghanistan and help topple the Taliban.
This is their story, telling the individual stories of how several of the men ended up in the military, and then eventually in the fight against the Taliban.
It's well researched and shows the men as people, not faceless soldiers or action movie paragons. Their struggle as they landed, got to know the locals, and helped them fight, is well detailed.
They pulled off something miraculous, although not without cost. The climax of the story, and also where they start and then work back to, is the battle at Qala-i-Janghi.
This is where CIA operative Mike Spann was killed, and the "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh was captured. It's an important part of modern history, especially modern military history.
As an aside, Lindh ended up in the facility I work in for a time. I found him to be a sullen, withdrawn, utterly unimpressive kid. He's not a hero, a martyr, or a misunderstood youth.
He made his choice to side with the enemy, and is remarkably lucky he survived the fight and then only got a 20 year sentence. My 3 star rating has nothing to do with the heroism of the men depicted in the book.
The author made a few odd stylistic choices when he veered from the facts that he obviously spent a lot of time researching.
It's a good story, but the writing could have been cleaned up a bit. Sep 24, Billbob Spear rated it it was amazing Shelves: military.
Having read Sebastian Junger's WAR, I was hungry for more Afghan information. This book is another must read for those who are trying to understand what we are really involved in in Afghanistan.
Doug Stanton explains what it was like to be among the 50 Special Forces men who won the initial war in Afghanistan by bringing in hi-tech techniques to assist the horse soldiers of the Northern Alliance in defeating 50, Taliban fighters.
Now we are back and are losses are going up. War SJunger wea Having read Sebastian Junger's WAR, I was hungry for more Afghan information.
War SJunger weakened my hawkish stance on or Mid-East Wars. This book changed my outlook somewhat. In two months, our Special Forces Horse Soldiers accomplished what the Pentagon brains thought would be at least a two year struggle.
Their efforts may be the template for how we should be fighting these wars. It worked once, why not do it again. This book will help you understand the dedication of our soldiers to their mission and the Afghan people.
Most of us really don't feel the Afghans pain. Read the book and see if you can't understand why the Afghans don't know who to trust. Jul 29, Bill rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites.
Special Forces lead the way This was interesting to see how effectively a well trained group of men adequately supported by airpower can turn the tide of a conflict.
Great insight into the shadow warriors. The section on the errant bomb during the battle for Qala-i-Jangi was especially moving. Knowing how easily things can go wrong in a conflict, I was surprised that the operations of TF Dagger did not receive more casualties.
I appreciate the sacrifice of these soldiers and their Northern Al Special Forces lead the way I appreciate the sacrifice of these soldiers and their Northern Alliance allies.
It is true that "people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf". Orwell although there is no evidence that Orwell ever uttered these words.
What it comes down to is that our Soldiers, Airmen, Marines and Sailors have the training and ability to do great things. This book is an example of some of these men who worked to stop the Taliban in their tracks.
Sep 05, Fredrick Danysh rated it it was amazing Shelves: history. The true story of a handful of American Specials Forces and CIA men who helped overthrow the Tabiban in Afghanistan before the politicans disbanded Afghan forces allowing the Tailiban to regain control of the country.
A story of heroism and dedication. Dec 03, Brett C rated it liked it Shelves: war-on-terror. I started out reading this strong and fullbore then I lost steam because I felt the story was all over the place.
A really compelling and real story. Jun 12, Nicole rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this informative read.
I had no clue what went on after the September 11th attacks, and when the U. S started sending forces over there.
It's amazing that just 12 special forces soldiers were able to essentially win the war in Afghanistan in 4 months, the U.
This book sheds light on the impossible task these men had to accomplish and they did it, even though they were completely unprepared. I liked the description at the end I really enjoyed this informative read.
I liked the description at the end of the book about this story, it's like a western movie but with bigger guns and lasers, and it is.
I loved reading the parts where the men are trying to get acclimated to horse riding, some scenes are just plain hilarious.
The reason for the four stars is just because I sometimes had trouble reading all the descriptions and information, it was a lot to take in in so few pages.
The Point of view also changed a lot which I liked but also didn't like because I had trouble knowing who was who and who was with who.
I loved reading this, but I feel like I didn't grasp the whole story as well as I would've liked only because I had trouble understanding what everything was and where everything was.
But I get the general idea and I am glad I read this book HARD TO GET THROUGH. BLOG INSTA For more than one reason. One of those reasons is the sheer mass of knowledge and facts that were added.
Yes, he definitely did his homework, but goodness, it was dense. I occasionally skimmed to move everything along.
Another reason was the heaviness that is war. In detail — injuries, death, and more was conveyed throughout these pages.
I literally cringed at the thought of every one invol HARD TO GET THROUGH. I literally cringed at the thought of every one involved having to witness and withstand these horrors.
I liked that the Special Forces and other portions of the military were explained. There were A LOT of people involved in this story. And the author let you know about them alllll.
The only thing that bothered me was how all of these soldiers now have their names and faces planted everywhere.
We live in such a digital age that I wonder how often media hurts more than helps answer: often. They deserved to stay as private as they choose.
My lower rating is mostly attributed to how tough this book felt to get through. This in no way takes away from what the soldiers accomplished.
As I said in my note, this is specifically about the book. Overall audience notes: - History: military, war - Language: occasional recounts of the dialogue - Violence: descriptions of: torture, battle wounds, treatment of women, and more May 15, Peter Corrigan rated it really liked it.
This is the book that was renamed '12 Strong' and became a movie. So I guess I now know what happens!
It's a pretty good book, not great. The story is very interesting though and what is most amazing is that it seems almost like ancient history.
And depressing to realize we are still there and little has really changed in Afghanistan. Roughly 40 to 60 percent of the population either sympathize with or are the Taliban and the other 40 to 60 percent despise them and would prefer to join the moder This is the book that was renamed '12 Strong' and became a movie.
Roughly 40 to 60 percent of the population either sympathize with or are the Taliban and the other 40 to 60 percent despise them and would prefer to join the modern world.
Based on the evidence the percentages haven't changed much in 18 years! Of course that is a brief interlude in the years since the world was graced with Mohammed and his minions but the longer term prospects for that country seem dim, unless of course you prefer Salafism.
But for a rousing look back at how what seemed like a miracle at the time actually occurred this book is well worth the time. Hats off to the men of the U.
