Sal Giuntas accounts of army life in Afganistan, he loyalty to the me he served with and the humble manner he accepted his Medal of Honor are inspiring. It is a story of a tough soldier a tough man who did his duty and with out intent found himself a hero. What a wonderful read of a man easy to respect and admire
The loss of men who were supposed to be invinsible giants.
Excels at bringing to story to life in the passion with which they tell it
Yes and did
This series was recommended by a close friend and it doesn't disappoint. It's engaging, terrifying and gratifying all at once. I have to say the lack of segment identification is a little bit of a stumble. One character to the next. Takes a few sentences to recognize where you are. The narrator pauses very little between different story lines. You have to be engaged or you will lose some of the story. Otherwise it's quite good.
I cannot begin to review this story, for I am not worthy of doing so. These men are the antithesis of American force, brotherhood and honor. Faced with an impossibly complex choice these "characters" chose the life of another over their own and paid dearly for it. This is simply the most epic tale of men in combat I have ever read or heard of. I've read the book three times and now have listened to it twice. May the dead rest easy and the living honor their names. Read the follow up book by Marcus, Service, and support the soldiers afar and those who come home. Saying they fight for us sounds trite but it truly is what they do. Good on ya luttrell and god bless.
Open Season was an entertaining if predictable book. Whats refreshing is that the lead character is not your typical hero. He's not an ex secret service, special ops bad ass. In fact hes kind of a bumbler. Its refreshing to hear a more plausible story line.
