A busy lady, just tryin' to fit her reading in where she can!
This is a tale of heroism and loss during the Afghanistan war. Marcus Luttrell is the lone survivor from Operation Red Wing, and this is the story of the battle of murphy's ridge in his own words. Its haunting, and honest...and no matter where your political views lie you will have nothing but respect for his journey.
Excellent narration, pace, timing, and an incredible story. I particularly liked the information in the forward and the notes at the end that bring the listener forward.
The amount of courage these Navy Seals have is incomprehensible. Makes you realize how fragile life is, and you look at how God has blessed this country despite all the liberal nonsense that continues. Thank you Marcus and your brave comrades, from the McCarty Family
Have found audiobooks to be a great way to pass time during long car road trips for work, and Audible makes it easy.
It's real and intense.

This book will make you want to run through a brick wall. Very motivational. Loved it.
It seemed to start slow to catch my attention, but when it did it was very hard to stop listening.
Marcus's description of each of his partners being killed. It trully does seem that he relives these terrible nightmares often.
Very well written.
I find it amazing the kind of men that the Seals produce and comforting knowing that they are the ones defending and protecting us. This book did a perfect job recognizing some of them.
Must read. the only reason I didn't give it a five star overall is because I'm holding out on that fifth star for a book that really moves me and invokes me into action.
