    At 24 years of age, U.S. Army Ranger Sean Parnell was named commander of a forty-man elite infantry platoon - a unit that came to be known as the Outlaws - and was tasked with rooting out Pakistan-based insurgents from a mountain valley along Afghanistan's eastern frontier. Parnell and his men assumed they would be facing a ragtag bunch of civilians, but in May 2006 what started out as a routine patrol through the lower mountains of the Hindu Kush became a brutal ambush.

    Just days before Chad Williams was scheduled to report for basic training at the Great Lakes naval base, he turned on the television and was greeted with the horrifying image of his mentor and training partner, US Navy SEAL Scott Helvenston, being brutally murdered in a premeditated ambush on the streets of Fallujah, Iraq. Steeled in his resolve, Chad committed himself to completing the US military’s most difficult training to become a Navy SEAL - and avenge his friend’s death.

    AXiD says: "from professional skate boarder to SEAL"
    "More of a 'I Found God' Evangelica dump."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Don't try to convert the reader to your god.


    What could Chad Williams and David Thomas have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    First third was weird, but okay.
    Should have stopped there.


    Did Chad Williams do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't not read......
    The only book from Audible, since 2001, that I could not finsh.
    It was just that bad.
