Six of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s former platoon mates are shopping proposals for a book and movie manuscript that are fiercely critical of the former prisoner of war.
Since Bergdahl’s controversial release in May, the six have appeared together in the media angered by White House attempts to paint the solider as a ‘war hero’ and united in their belief that he is a deserter.
There are known to be at least two versions of the book, including one which depicts Bergdahl as a ‘premeditated’ deserter who ‘put all of our lives in danger.’
