    Story

    Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, the story in and of itself is one of the most incredible stories of perseverance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lone Survivor?

    Quite simply, the string of luck he has to make it out alive.


    What didn’t you like about Kevin Collins’s performance?

    Many people dislike Kevin Collins' readings because he is very dramatic. While it is true it is a bit overwhelming at first, the story is worth the listen… Plus, you get used to it rather quickly. The people vilifying the book simply for Kevin's reading are being overly dramatic.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, it absolutely has it's moments in which you tear up. It also has moments that are too incredible to be perceived as true at first glance.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read or listened to a vast array of military nonfiction. From World War II and Vietnam, to the Cold War and contemporary writings, I've got a decent amount of experience with the genre. This is, without question, the most incredible true story I've ever read… With all due respect to 'Unbroken.' If you listen to one story, one military nonfiction, one SEAL book, I hope it is this one.
