Jake Tapper began his job as Anchor and Chief Washington Correspondent for CNN in January 2013. Prior to that, Tapper was named ABC News' senior White House correspondent on November 5, 2008 - the day after the 2008 presidential election. For an unprecedented three years in a row, the White House Correspondents' Association has awarded him the prestigious Merriman Smith Award for presidential coverage under deadline pressure.

Reviews

'For those wishing to understand the middle years of the war, they could do no better than to read The Outpost' Time

'Brilliant, dedicated reporting by a journalist who goes to ground to get the truth. A sad, real tale about this war, America and the brave warriors who live-and die-at the point of the spear' Bob Woodward, author of Fear

'There have been many books written on the subject of America's seemingly endless engagement in Afghanistan, but none better than The Outpost' Atlantic

'The Outpost is a mind-boggling, all-too-true story of heroism, hubris, failed strategy, and heartbreaking sacrifice. If you want to understand how the war in Afghanistan went off the rails, you need to read this book' Jon Krakauer, author of Into the Wild

"The power of The Outpost lies in Tapper's development of the main characters ... He juxtaposes dramatic battles, complete with limbs blown off and eyes dangling from sockets, with poignant scenes of wives and parents first learning of the deaths of their loved ones' Washington Post

'Tapper lays bare the poor decision-making that shattered dozens of American lives in the pursuit of an ill-conceived goal' Wall Street Journal

'A heartbreaking chronicle of the rotation of soldiers asked to oversee an underfunded, often thankless mission' Huffington Post

'The seminal work of documentary journalism to emerge out of the post-9/11 war in Afghanistan' Business Standard
