Sean Parnell returned from fighting for the United States in Afghanistan with the desire to honor the platoon in which he served. So he wrote a memoir, Outlaw Platoon, which became a runaway bestseller. His follow-up, Man of War, jumped from memoir to fiction but the intent was the same: to honor his comrades.
In his latest thriller, All Out War, the protagonist from his first book, Eric Steele, addresses two fundamental questions: Is the mission he's been handed worth it? And is he free or is he a slave?
Fred Burton, Stratfor's chief security officer and the host of the "Pen and Sword" podcast, recently caught up with Parnell to discuss these questions and more.
