Publisher's Summary

A Few Bad Men is the incredible true story of an elite team of US Marines set up to take the fall for Afghanistan war crimes they did not commit—and their leader who fought for the redemption of his men.

Ambushed in Afghanistan and betrayed by their own leaders, these elite Marines fought for their lives again, back home.

A cross between A Few Good Men and American Sniper, this is the true story of an elite Marine special operations unit bombed by an IED and shot at during an Afghanistan ambush. The Marine Commandos were falsely accused of gunning down innocent Afghan civilians following the ambush. The unit’s leader, Major Fred Galvin, was summarily relieved of duty, and his unit was booted from the combat zone. They were condemned by everyone, from the Afghan president to American generals. When Fox Company returned to America, Galvin and his captain were the targets of the first Court of Inquiry in the Marines in fifty years.

Excellent story that is well written

This is an extremely important moment in recent history. Fred Galvin and Sal Manna have done us a huge favor by telling this story in its truest detailed form. The Men of Fox Company deserve our attention and respect. They deserve to have their reputations restored.

It’s an awesome book and I feel honored to now know more details of a story that has been in legend for so many years.

Thank you for writing this book Sir!

Evil and selfishness

Our government is corrupt and full of people who don’t work for us, but, for themselves.

Must read!

It should be on the Commandants reading list but it will end up on the contraband list.

Always Faithful - Marine Corp, are you?

My son served under Galvin in Afghanistan, saw the removal of a top notch officer for a politically correct officer. My son continues to fight with the demons after being out of the Marines for close to five years. May Gid have mercy on our Country and our Corp.

Disgraceful leadership!

This is endemic of what has happened to our country. As a serviceman I was taught that the military is a microcosm of our larger society and I believe it. The senior leadership of our military over the the last 30 years have become infected with person’s who have insufficient character and moral courage to be effective. This has caused our military to go from being able to fight and win on two fronts the evils of Nazi Germany and Imperialist Japan to being unable to defeat nomadic tribesmen who harbor theocratic terrorist. This is because our civilian and military leader ranks are poisoned with undeserving people promoting themselves rather than caring for the people they are suppose to serve. To the Major and his Marines I say Semper Fi and I am grateful for for your courage, character and service. Lastly, it disgusts me when I see men like Amos, Mattis and Patraeus lauded by our press as heroes when they are not. I do believe in redemption, but this can only occur when you publicly apologize for your mistakes and errors. Some of the other leaders in this story deserve to be jailed for their corruption and deceitfulness. This book should be mandatory reading at all military academies and ROTC leadership classes.

A very disturbing read for a Marine

Major Galvin did a tremendous service to the Marines who served under his command in Afghanistan during the Marine Corps’ first joint tour as Special Operators with JSOTF. He does the nation a service by exposing the failure of our senior officers to act with honor and integrity, and to deserve the trust of the Marines whose lives are entrusted to them. Generals Mattis, Amos, Conway and General Mattis’ hand picked deep-selected JAG (an officer who corrupted the UCMJ with Mattis’ knowledge) are revealed to be unworthy to lead Marines and unable to win a war after 15 years. I hope our Corps can survive Generals such as these.

Stunning

Amazing story. Fascinating biography, wartime adventure, and court room drama with twists. It's so crazy to think that everything in this book really happened.

Marine Corps owes MARSOC 7

I am intimately aware of the circumstances surrounding the MARSOC 7 incident and their subsequent treatment by the Marine Corps. Fred Galvin is one of the greatest Marines I know and I would follow him into combat without reservation- I hope those who listen to this story realize the corruption and incompetence rife with in the bloated and arrogant DoD. I pray that Fred Galvin and the MARSOC 7 are one day given the public apology they deserve and the record is set straight for good. Semper Fi

IT’S A DAMN SHAME TO SELL OUT OUR SOLDIERS

I think that’s exactly what’s currently happening now to our nation! We’ve got enemies within & afar! They’re now, as the saying goes, “Coming Out Of The Woodwork”

Plus they don’t even care who knows it! I’ve become one of the most patriotic people every since 9/11. I was 51 years old when they attacked us then. I would’ve enlisted in a heartbeat, TOO OLD!!!

I’m very saddened & disappointed with the past events of what happened in the writings of this book! These men risked their lives for our country!!

This is a “DEFINITE MUST READ”, or even better, MUST LISTEN TO ON AUDIO! That’s the way to go, especially if you’re busy… this way you can get two things accomplished at once 😂

As for today’s current events… I’ll 2nd the sellout statement once again!

HEY, PEOPLE YA’LL DO KNOW THAT’S ANOTHER LET DOWN!! YEP, TO OUR MILITARY & ENTIRE NATION!!!! (All those weapons plus deaths of soldiers & non-soldiers)!

Oh yeah, I forgot folks I gotta 2nd this statement “IT’S A DAMN SHAME”!!!!!!!

WTF????

Why is it the men on the ground continue to complain about the leadership of our military and nothing is done and no one is held accountable?! These folks present a greater threat to our country than China, Russia, North Korea, the main stream media and Islamic terrorist combined. These folks hate America and are self serving pos.
