I listen to books on my long commute.
I bought the book to hear how OBL was killed. I now understand the immense preparation time and sacrifices made for this operation. Thank you for taking the risks you did to write this history.
I like to listen to adventure stories and funny stories. I have a real preference for travel tales and sometimes even enjoy a good mystery. I love fiction, but also like to learn facts. I like all kinds of stories. Follow me, if you do too!
It's an adventure story! The story of the stalking and eventual killing of the most notorious villain in American history. It's a story of the brave Navy Seals on the mission that day and how that famous day came to be. I liked learning more about how the Seals train and how they think. I feel safer knowing they are on the job.
I think that telling the story without the political commentary would have been better. I can understand and appreciate the author's opinion. However, the President IS the Commander in Chief of the military. That is the way our government works, like it or not. War ALWAYS has a political component. Just think what it would be like in a country where the leader is "selected" and not "elected" - not everyone likes their boss, whether they are in the military or not. No one operates independent of some type of politics whether they are in the military or not.
Probably - or "pay per view". It's an interesting story and I think the general public WANTS to know about the mission. We need the closure and to share in the sense of satisfaction that comes when justice, even though delayed, is eventually done!
Proceeds from this book go to Veteran's organizations; that alone should encourage you to purchase it - thank a Vet!
A very good read. I enjoyed the book and found it went by very fast because it pulls you into the story. To all the US Armed Forces, thank you for your service and dedication to your country.
I have not purchased a print book in 2 years as I purchase only Audible versions of books.
The account of the attack on Osama Bin Laden's hiding place was riveting. I can't begin to imagine how it would feel to be a part of that event.
Holter Graham's performance was very good as he embodied the enthusiasm and adrenaline that the author experienced on his many missions to the middle east.
The biggest win in the war on terror.
I commute about an hour each way to work and listen to audio books enroute. Sometimes I don't want to get out of my car because I'm at a really good place!
I was captured by this book from the first word. No secrets are given away, but you get a good idea of how and why things are done the Seal way. The narrator, Holter Graham, does an excellent job and brings life to the written word. I listened to it on the way to work and looked forward to the commute each day. "Mark" and the others are truly brave men who keep our country safe. I could see the hand of God keeping them safe during their missions. Bless them.
I had a friend who was on a seal team for a few years. I had a lot of respect for him then and now I have a lot more respect for him after this book. This was a great insight in to the minds of these men. I say thank you to these guys.
I like the "NO B.S." tone he brings to the story. There are a few other books I wish he would read. The best produced book I have heard yet.
Yes. It was hard to stop.
The best Ive purchased yet. A great audiobook describing some of the greatest americans on earth
Captures your interest from the start. You can appreciate just how amazing these young men are. They don't ask for praise, they are there to do a job and they get it done.
I like how you are drawn in to the action. Makes you feel that you are there.
Have not listened to other books by Graham.
Makes me proud to know that we have this caliber of person serving our country!
Everyone should read or listen to this book. I feel like I got the truth about the mission that killed our # 1 enemy. Makes you appreciate the Special Forces that serve our country.
We are building fantastic warriors throughout the world, and they want to use their skill sets, but in listening to this book all I can think about is the impression we left on the woman and children at the compound, watching the Americans kill. Yes, I know they killed thousands of us, however I hope a day comes that the only weapon in war will be debate and words.
I totally respect all the Seals for what they are doing to protect us, and I'm very thankful they are on our side.
