    It was the last-chance moment of the war. In January 2007, President George W. Bush announced a new strategy for Iraq. He called it "the surge". "Many listening tonight will ask why this effort will succeed when previous operations to secure Baghdad did not. Well, here are the differences," he told a skeptical nation. Among those listening were the young, optimistic Army infantry soldiers of the 2-16, the battalion nicknamed the Rangers.

    Candy says: "This book is amazing, but brutal"
    "SAD but true"
    Overall

    I liked the book for its real storyline but thought it to be too sad for my liking.
    There is alot of feeling and not enough action for me.

    Under deep cover, on direct orders from the Oval Office, the Rogue Warrior and his GREEN TEAM of U.S. Navy SEALs have slipped overseas to snatch a terrorist and bring him to justice in an American courtroom. But Dick Marcinko is diverted to England, where an aircraft carrier has been sabotaged killing 36 - including the American Chief of Naval Operations, one of the few friends the Rogue Warrior had left in the Navy.

    Scotty says: "yea"
    "Way to go Dick!"
    Overall

    I don't think Marcinko could write a bad book. Once again action from begining to end with no sensless emotion to get you down.
    Keep them coming.

    No one knows SpecWar - deep-cover commando operations conducted with absolute secrecy and total ruthlessness by the world's most deadly counterterrorist units - better than Richard Marcinko. Now the Rogue Warrior returns in a raw, authentic novel of terrorism striking at the heart of the American government and the military. Once again, the Rogue Warrior and his team of SEALs have been called into action.

    Charles says: "Marckino delivers!"
    "Another good story"
    Overall

    Action from begining to end. Tricky Dick has done it again.
    My only dissapointment is that is a short story, but all Richard Marcinko books are.

    There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has been only one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legend of Marine lore. He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines. His record has never been matched: 93 confirmed kills. This is his story. Powerful, chilling, and all true.

    sheridan says: "history at its best"
    "Simply Great"
    Overall

    I cannot say enough about this listen. It never failed to amaze. These true accounts of the pioneering Marine scout snipers makes me proud to be an American. I'm a better person for have herd it.

    In June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader. Less then 24 hours later, only one of those SEALs remained alive. This is the story of how team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle that led to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history.

    "Great story"
    Overall

    A fantastic story with true accounts of the bravery and heroism of our "give all and ask for nothing" elite american soldiers. A good action listen that left me urning for more.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Robert B. Wales says: "Same great Clancey - Great narration"
    "Non stop action beging to end!"
    Overall

    Great listen! Great narration! Good action throughout, not bogged down by over dramatized emotion anywhere in the story. Kept me wanting more all the way thru.

  • No True Glory: A Frontline Account of the Battle for Fallujah

    Story

    Based on months spent with the battalions in Fallujah and hundreds of interviews at every level (senior policymakers, negotiators, generals, and soldiers and Marines on the front lines) No True Glory is a testament to the bravery of the American soldier and a cautionary tale about the complex, and often costly, interconnected roles of policy, politics, and battle in the twenty-first century.

    Todd says: "This is a must read book!"
    "70% Political 30% Action"
    Overall

    This book gets 3 stars from me because it talks alot more politics and policy than true grit. I'm like more of a small unit day to day operations listener and this book doesn't cover alot of that. I think it would be a good listen for folks that like a "big picture" type story.

    But thats just my opinion.
