inspired my thinking
history became relevant, alive, the story telling was magnificent. The narrator was a joy to listen to.
I think about people that I interact with, and try to understand their "history" . I was inspired to read ( or audio ) more biographies to expand my own knowledge.
I have recommended this title to many of my friends. I work out ( hiking and outdoor cardio ) while listening to audiobooks, and with this story, I was compelled to work out longer as I didn't want my sessions to end. I will again listen to this book after I have read about Eleanor Roosevelt. I had already read all of Amy Tan's books, so I was familiar with her as an author, but enjoyed learning more about her as a child. I also love ancient history, so of course, the story of Hannibal was great.
I just loved listening to the story just as I used to love listening to my dad's stories , as he was a World War II B-17 bomber pilot. The author, Lynn Compton, and my dad would've been the same age. I had watched the Band of Brothers miniseries on DVD many years ago and now I'll make sure that the book is on my list of future audibles to listen to.
I highly recommend Call of Duty, and I hope that my children will also listen to the story.
After just finishing Lone Survivor, Seal Team Six is a great follow up story. I ran and hiked more miles because I was so engaged in the story. I will continue to seek out great military stories.
This first hand account is genuinely riveting . I listen to audible books , mostly history and biographical while hiking trails and found myself going many more miles so I could continue with the story. I had just finished Fighter Pilot ( WWll - Viet Nam memoir of ace pilot Robin Olds ) and Ghengis Khan ( 1200AD Mongols vs the world ), and couldn't help but relate about how wars are fought to either win ( or not ) . If you like history and want to have a taste of Navy Seal training , don't miss this one !
