If you want to understand Afganistan and the Middle East this is a must read. Very interesting and really pulls you in.
I've been a huge fan of all of Mitch's adventures until now! The reader was so bad that by 1 hour in I turned it off and ordered the book from Amazon. I couldn't stand it anymore. As any veteran of audio books with testify the READER can make or break a book. I've downloaded hundreds of books over the last 8 years and I should have known better when I saw that the reader wasn't George Guidall who does most of the series. Save your money here and buy the paper copy if you see it isn't George reading.

This book is truly amazing. I don't care what your stance on the war on terror is. You will come away with a better realization of how lucky we are, even blessed, to live in a country where brave men have always risen to the threat against our families, country, and liberty! Marcus makes my heart swell with pride in the american defined attribute of uncommon courage by common americans. I am so greatful for the sacrafice that so many have made that freedom may ring through out this land.
An interesting look into Foreign relations. Interesting how the USA knew where Pablo Escobar was at but the Colombian Authorities where unable to apprehend him. I have done my own research and one of the final theories on Pablo's death is absolutely correct. You will have to read to understand.
The reader isn't very good and the book is a cry baby's whining. I love these people who sign up for the benefits of the military (education, leadership training, discipline, and of course adventure and then are angry when they have to fulfill the main mission of the military, Defend and Fight for the USA. This is a poorly written and worthless book. It will go the way of obscurity as all bad books do even with Hollywood behind it.
The first Robert Littell book I read was the Company which is a spectacular book. I read some of his other books afterwards and they were good but not like the company. Legends is AWESOME! It is as good if not bette than the Company. Great story with twists and turns. Finished it in 3 days and wished it wasn't over, which to me is a sign of a GREAT book.
This book is excellent. Great Reader and Great Story about some very brave men who served on a submarine during WWII. If you want a human perspective on War this is it. Every second was great.
This is a great book. I bought it on a whim and couldn't stop listening. It has it all
Action, Violence, Friendship, Life, Adulthood, and even some love but in a way a guy can understand and relate to. I mean a real man not some girly man. If you want a great book this is one to buy.
This book should be required reading for all Americans. First it is one of the great literary works of our time. Second, it is a great way to learn about one of the most influencial events in our nations history. Give yourself a treat and enjoy this book.
This is one of the best books Audible has to offer. This book made me a believer in audio books. I've always been a reader and I scoffed at "listening to a book" This book converted me. I felt all the emotions and imaginations that a paper book gives while listening to this book. If you like Clancy or Spy Novels this is the book to get. The Reader is awesome.
