Summary On April 22, 2004, Lieutenant David Uthlaut received orders that his platoon was to leave the town of Magarah, Afghanistan, for a small village on the Pakistan border. The lieutenant protested, but the commanders disregarded his objections. By nightfall, Uthlaut and his radio operator were seriously wounded, and an Afghan militia soldier and a U.S. soldier were dead. The American soldier was Pat Tillman. The Tillman family was first informed that Pat, who had given up a professional football career to serve his country, had been shot while getting out of a vehicle; twelve days later, they were told that he was killed while running up a hill in pursuit of the enemy. Weeks afterward, they learned that he had been shot by his own troops in a "friendly fire" incident. This is a chronicle of their efforts to ascertain the true circumstances of Pat's death and the reasons why the Army gave the family and the public a false story.--From publisher description.
