Perhaps obscured by the mushroom cloud that was the release of The Lost Symbol was the release of Jon Krakauer’s new book, Where Men Win Glory: The Oddysey of Pat Tillman. Krakauer, of course, is the author of Into the Wild, Under the Banner of Heaven, and Into Thin Air, and is one of the most respected and widely read nonfiction authors living today.

Doubleday.com has a great photo album on their website of Krakauer’s time embedded with American and Afghan forces in May and June 2006. The experience was part of Krakauer’s research for the new book.

That other guy…Krakauer
