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.

    Story
    "Sad, sad story."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would, if the genre was in their wheelhouse.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marcus Luttrell- he went through so much and survived.


    What does Kevin Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked that his first person account included Luttrell's Texas accent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Obviously this has already been made into a movie, so I can't add anything here.

    Story
    "Starts slow but reads like honest thought."

    I cab honestly say, the first few chapters read preachy and disjointed. Like a struggling college student trying to write a paper that they couldn't wrap their head around.

    That being said, that unpolished feel to the book purveys and gives a truthful feel to the words. This truly is Mr. Cantrell's experience; to the T.

    Men like Marcus and Chris Kyle are what make my home state great and why I will always call it home. The deep emotion and honesty would be hard for any man. Especially a natural born warrior such as him.

    God speed and thank you, sir.

    Story
    "A must read for every American"
    Any additional comments?

    Marcus Latrell gives such detail that it is heart wrenching to listen to the events he and his teammates suffered through on that mountain. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat even, obviously, knowing that he survives. A wonderfully description of what it means to be a Patriot in every sense of the word. This is a story worth telling.

    "Great Book by A Great Hero!"

    Postponed listening to it because my boys are serving in the military currently. However once I started it couldn't stop until it was over. I laughed, I got pissed, I cheered and I cried. Doesn't get any better than that
