This was an excellent story from beginning to end. It truly captures the heroic actions of the US Navy Seals, and the devastating events that occurred that fateful day. It took me a day and half to finish the 14 plus hours of this tale because I just couldn't stop listening.
i have no clue. i haven't actually read a book since high school.
There was no favorite character to me. I felt for all the Navy seals and their families. War is just the worst.
He did a good job with all of them.
Yes, but i have 4 mouths to feed and a job i go to every day so i couldn't.
The story is quite intense and had me wanting to listen to it all the time. The narration is great and helps put you in the middle of the action. I gained a new level of respect for the individuals who serve our country and the families who stand behind them.
I read a lot of war books a war memoirs. However this by far is my favorite book. A book about heroism by a humble man who wants his achievements to be passed on to his well deserving fellow soldiers. Anyone who sees this book should pick it up and read it!
Very moving very inspiring sad and happy at the same time. I watched the movie but the book is soooo much more...and some.
Narrator was great!!
I truly identified with Marcus I felt all his pain his frustration his gratefulness everything!!! Marcus is a true living hero!! Totally great listen.
The story was that of a very proud Navy Seal. His loyalty to the Seals, Navy, family and this country, America, squirted out of every word he printed. Just had a really hard time getting through this book because of the language! It was horrible!!
I read the book before and it was one of my favorites, however the narrator made this a whole new book for me and not in a good way. The narrator whispers during the parts of the book where someone is yelling and it completely takes you out of the book.
Great story. Would have seemed unreal if it was not non-fiction due to the amazing feats of the SEALs. I never realized how the ROE affected the military and the impact of the media on their choices. To view the current style of war from the eyes of someone there, and the real struggles they face, this is the book. This book was honest and it has been a long time since I have read a story that made me laugh, cry, and understand the core of the people involved.
If only to honor the memories of the fallen warriors of this story, as well as every other lost solider of war.. this should be on your read list.
Marcus - I can't imagine how hard it was putting this experience to print, but thank you for sharing your story.
