Publisher's Summary

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. His squadmates fought valiantly beside him until he was the only one left alive, blasted by an RPG into a place where his pursuers could not find him. Over the next four days, terribly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell crawled for miles through the mountains and was taken in by sympathetic villagers who risked their lives to keep him safe from surrounding Taliban warriors.

A born and raised Texan, Marcus Luttrell takes us from the rigors of SEAL training, where he and his fellow SEALs discovered what it took to join the most elite of the American special forces, to a fight in the desolate hills of Afghanistan for which they never could have been prepared. His account of his squadmates' heroism and mutual support renders an experience for which two of his squadmates were posthumously awarded the Navy Cross for combat heroism that is both heartrending and life-affirming. In this rich chronicle of courage and sacrifice, honor and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers a powerful narrative of modern war.

    "Awestruck"

    What amazing and heroic men! Thank you for telling the story Marcus! Navy Seals have got to be the baddest warriors ever to walk the earth. The grit and determination is unfathomable.

    Story
    ""INSPIRATIONAL""
    Where does Lone Survivor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Lone Survivor is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to so far, though I found the tone and tenor of the narrator voice a bit jarring at first, The accent which I believe to be Texan didn't quite denote the seriousness of the story, but I got used to after a while.As for the story, it was compelling. If this was a fiction piece, critics would have panned it for being far fetched


    What other book might you compare Lone Survivor to and why?

    If I had to compare Lone Survivor to any other book, it would have to "Bravo two zero" by Andy McNab, which I read about 15 Years ago. Very similar. . About a small team of SAS on recon op in Iraq that goes wrong, and they are fighting for their lives.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Cannot name a favorite scene there were too many. .


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene where the battle with the Taliban ensued, though out gunned, out numbered, and badly injured, facing certain death a the hands of a ruthless and determined enemy, their resolve never wavered, the courage, fighting spirit and love those four men showed for one another in their last moments was not only moving but inspiring. .


    Any additional comments?

    My only problem is now to find another special ops book that exceeds or even just equals this one. Something tells me it is not going to be easy. .

    action-packed, heartbreaking, and intense

    LT Michael Murphy - He showed true heroism and great leadership until his dying breaths.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Collins – was your favorite?

    Marcus Lutrell - He was great at showing his emotions and getting into character. It made the story come to life listening to it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. But it didn't turn out that way.


    Any additional comments?

    Amazing story. Must-listen or read

    "Great Story"

    Writing wasn't great and there were quite a few scientific errors. Probably wouldn't bother most but I'm a scientist and they bothered me. On the upside, the story of American heroism is incredible. What a country we live in.

    "Hollywood who?"

    Hollywood didn't touch his accounts so much better than the movie. True tale of perseverance.

    Story
    "Great story. Politics gets a little old."

    Fantastic story, and what those men did was amazing and awe inspiring. My only gripe is a personal one for how many times the author complained and expressed hate to "liberal media" and "rules of engagement". The opinion was made clear about 5 times a chapter. Got a bit old and tiresome to go out of the way of the story to complain about other people so regularly. Overall amazing story.
