Jake Tapper Gets Book Deal For Afghanistan Battle Book

Little, Brown and Company is announcing a book deal with Jake Tapper, ABC News Senior White House Correspondent.

In "Enemy In the Wire," Tapper will tell the story of U.S. troops' deadliest battle in Afghanistan last year. At dawn on Oct. 3, 2009, the 54 U.S. soldiers at Combat Outpost Keating in northeast Afghanistan -- tucked in a vulnerable valley surrounded by three heavily forested mountains near the Pakistan border -- were attacked by 300 to 400 Taliban, some of whom had managed to get inside the camp -- "in the wire."
