In Ashley's War, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon uses on - the ground reporting and a finely tuned understanding of the complexities of war to tell the story of CST - 2, a unit of women hand - picked from the Army to serve in this highly specialized and challenging role. The pioneers of CST - 2 proved for the first time, at least to some grizzled Special Operations soldiers, that women might be physically and mentally tough enough to become one of them. At the heart of the team is the tale of a beloved and effective soldier, Ashley White, who gives her life serving her country in a role for which she will never officially receive credit. Lemmon transports readers to a world they previously had no idea existed: Ashley's War is a gripping combat narrative and a moving story of friendship - a book that will change the way readers think about war and the meaning of service.

An unforgettable story of female soldiers breaking the brass ceiling. The women who answered America's call to serve show that our military is stronger when it engages both halves of the population. This book will inspire you and remind you of the power that comes with defying limits." -- Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In "Gayle Tzemach Lemmon expertly gives readers an inside look at what it takes to work alongside America's elite forces. The book is a gripping, moving, and well-told war story, but more importantly it offers the first glimpse into a historic program." -- Kevin Maurer, author of Gentlemen Bastards "Lemmon has done her homework... She is a strong and capable guide... With a fine eye for detail, she shows us what set this program apart." -- Foreign Policy "A tremendous story... Very moving." -- The Daily Show with Jon Stewart "Ashley's War shares the remarkable stories of one of the first teams of women serving in the U.S. Army Special Operations Command. This team forged the path for American women who serve in harm's way all over the world and continue to make the ultimate sacrifice." -- Senator John McCain "Ashley's War quietly grips the reader with the untold story of a small group of women selected to serve in combat alongside the US's best soldiers... Rich storytelling... Compelling... In battle as in life, these women refuse to quit." -- Christian Science Monitor "Fascinating and often moving, Ashley's War follows one of the early groups of women who volunteered to serve alongside special operations soldiers, vividly portraying their training, their early missions as they learn their jobs, their bonds of friendship, and their reckoning with the toll of war. Remarkable." -- Phil Klay, author of Redeployment
