    In June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader. Less then 24 hours later, only one of those SEALs remained alive. This is the story of how team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle that led to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history.

    Overall

    Lone Survivor is a fascinating story about a little-known arena of
    the war on terrorism. As Americans,we should all be better-informed
    about such things, if only to be more supportive to the soldiers who
    are willing to make such horrendous sacrifices so that we can continue to enjoy our freedoms.
    Kevin T. Collins' narration was absolutely superb, and exactly the voice one
    would have expected Luttrell to have. Let's hope we hear many more
    books read by him.
    That said, I was sorry that this book was abridged, as the complexity and length
    of the hillside battle would have been better-appreciated in more
    detail. Although the author's decision to release the goatherds will
    undoubtedly haunt him for the rest of his life, it's a shame
    that he reduced a generous and righteous act to a simplistic rant
    about liberals(even though I don't disagree). The bravery and
    patriotism of these men was less-than-well-served by the somewhat sophomoric
    way the authors chose to tell the story. One wonders what the editor
    was thinking........
    But I absolutely enjoyed the book, and the Kevin T.
    Collins narration was just perfect.

    Fast-Paced, well-written, intriguing and believable plot, excellent narration. What were your other 2 reviewers drinking/smoking/ingesting??? We didn't listen to the same book. I can't wait to hear another book by Corbett,hopefully narrated by Collins.
