    Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

    Mike says: "Enthralling and authentic story of valor in combat"

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I didn't dislike him as much as some of the other reviewers but a lot of parts were over emphasized. The "Hooyah Instructor Reno" drove me insane though.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they announced to his mom that he was safe I got the ol "cutting onions" experience.


    Any additional comments?

    I really disliked the assumption that every "liberal" hates our troops and wants them all put in jail. I found it to be far off base and not true at all. Some people in this country are going to always dislike our armed forces, but to paint an entire group (if you can even call "liberals" that, as if people are all the same) with such a wide brush was annoying and small minded. All in all though this was a good book by an incredibly heroic man.
