I can't say without giving away a major plot twist
I love the husky, slow tone of his voice, the way the words roll off his tongue, the emphasis he puts on each one.
Being from the Lowcountry of South Carolina, it made me a bit homesick
as always, a GREAT book
I am intrigued by terrorism and secret Delta Force organizations, This book told just enough to keep you interested and still private enough to not blow any national secrets.
I appreciated that even though it is a personal memoir, it wasn't 'me me me', but mostly stores of "my team". This is very much like Airline pilot Captain Sullenberger's book, Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters
As a military veteran myself, having been through boot camp and training camp (although NOTHING like he chronicles, thank goodness), I found the beginning passages about the selection process interesting and something I could (somewhat) identify with.
Any naysayers who think CSM Haney (Retired) is just puffing himself up in this book need to remember this is HIS perspective of HIS experiences.It is really a balanced look back at his time in the Army.
I also think he is SPOT on in his observations in the epilogue about our nation's greatest threats.
It kept me interested. However, I was disappointed to discover some subplots are recycled from previous works. A little "Kane and Abel", a little "Prisoner of Birth", and one chapter was nearly verbatim from "Sons of Fortune". Can you plagiarize yourself?
I felt very invested in what happened to everyone in the story, kept me coming back whenever I had a moment to listen
