    When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, "I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."

    Story

    The is a story of a true super-hero. From beginning to end this book touches on every emotion. I have enjoyed many of the latest batch of military books (Lone Survivor, American Sniper, etc.). This one is the best! I actually started to listen to it again to pick up on parts that I may have missed. You witness a man rising to the pinnacle of the military special forces only after crawling from the depths of drug addiction and despair. Like the other reviews, I am starting to sound like this book is only about Mr. Brown's personal life and struggles. Don't worry, there is lots of SEAL team background and action! You will not believe how hard this guy worked to stay on top. Just one example: Losing an eye and fingers and having to teach himself to shoot with his weak hand/eye. Unbelievable! This is one book that could easily be transitioned to a fantastic movie.

    I thank Mr. Brown for his heroic service to our country. My deepest sympathies to his wife and children.

    Southern Afghanistan was slipping away. That was clear to then-Captain Rusty Bradley as he began his third tour of duty there in 2006. The Taliban and their allies were infiltrating everywhere, poised to reclaim Kandahar Province, their strategically vital onetime capital. To stop them, the NATO coalition launched Operation Medusa, the largest offensive in its history. The battlefield was the Panjwayi Valley, a densely packed warren of walled compounds that doubled neatly as enemy bunkers.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Lions of Kandahar the most enjoyable?

    The overall story was interesting and definitley worth a listen if you are into the latest crop of military related books (Lone Survivor, SEAL Team Six, American Sniper, etc.). I have nothing but praise and respect for Mr. Bradley and his team and thank them for their remarkable service. The flow of the story was a bit disjointed in parts with the dialogue sounding a bit forced. As a firearms enthusiast, I did appreciate the detailed descriptions of weapons used by both sides of each conflict. In the later chapters as the fighting intensified, there were many gripping moments when I did not want to turn the car off and stop listenening. I am glad that I purchased this book and spent the time to learn about this important battle and the heroic people involved.
