    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Story

    A well-paced, well-structured story that is padded with lots of preamble, since the actual raid isn't enough material for a book. I would have been interested in hearing about how he overcame the ethical precepts (Thou Shalt Not Kill) his Christian missionary parents raised him with, and how his parents deal with his job as a government-employed mercenary.

    One thing I found annoying was the constant grumbling about Obama and the politicians who took the credit for the hard he and his comrades did. The notion that soldiers are expendable tools for the implementation of foreign policy--and that their masters are politicians who have never worn a uniform--should have been obvious to this guy before he ever left college.
