Maj. Galvin's book is about the wrongly accused men in his special operations unit, including himself, who became known as the MARSOC Seven. They were all charged with homicide and faced life imprisonment.

More about the MARSOC SEVEN from

"Fox Company Marines (MSOC F) were accused of indiscriminately killing Afghan civilians in March of 2007, and that narrative was spread throughout the media as a result of a rush to judgment by several military leaders who were directly responsible for the expulsion of Fox Company from Afghanistan. This rush to judgment occurred without sufficient evidence, as later proven during the Court of Inquiry."
