So many sources site the inaccuracies of this story of bravery. Too much evidence of falsehoods and this takes away from what would otherwise be an amazing piece of military history. Marcus is seen by many as a war profiteer and I believe that to be true as well. His story doesn't even meet his own after action report.
Amazing tale of human perseverance and compassion- I am a woman and now have deep respect for this man's spirit and a culture's honor I knew nothing of before.
Although I have a different life, I am inspired to live my dream and to persevere, and to be a better man
I can't help but get the feeling there is some exaggeration in this story, none the less it's a good read and well narrated.
The story of Mike Murphy, Dan Dietz, Matthew Axelson, and Marcus Luttrell is extremely moving. It is a book that I will never forget and will push me to be a better man. I'm so proud to be an American because of men like this along everyone who has ever fought in our Military.
Thank you for writing this book! God bless America!
I have nothing but the ultimate respect for the men and women serving in our armed forces. I especially have a great admiration for the of the Navy Seals and other special forces. These guys are a special gift from God, to the United States. I am so proud that they are fighting for us. This book had my emotions all over the place, from anxious , to angry and to sad but most of all, proud. Proud of the brave men. This book is great honor to all the men who lost their lives serving this country and I just hope that we as a country can attempt to repay that honor by giving these men all the respect, admiration, honor and anything they need, of which they fully deserve and are due. Thank you Marcus Luttrell for sharing your heart with us, the readers and people who will never understand what it is to serve as you do. My God this is an Awesome Read!
