    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.

    Overall

    I have read stories that spoke of the incredibly tough training that Navy Seals go through - stuff that makes Marine Corps boot camp look like a Sunday School picnic.

    This is the first story I've read that showed the fruit of that training in a real under fire situation. The courage and toughness - both mental and physical - displayed by the Seal team in this book is impressive, even to this Marine, who isn't easily impressed. Just as impressive were the Afghani villagers who risked everything - more than pretty much any of us would - to protect the Lone Survivor until he could be rescued.

    This book works very well in terms of a cultural geographical text and a combat survival story. Add in an element of how the writer's faith in God helped him in interesting ways through the ordeal, and it's a story that can be enjoyed on multiple levels. This one goes on my list to listen to again.
