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.

    "Great story and well told"

    It is unbelievable what our military and armed forces go through for all of of us. This account just shows how special our Navy Seals are and how much we should be thankful for them. As Marcus has said 99.9% would not do what they do. Thank you to all that have served and are currently serving.

    "thank God for these great Americans"

    I have always been in awe of these guys. so thankful for them. their drive and determination is something we'd all like to believe we possess, in reality 99.99% don't even have a fraction of the stuff these guys are made of. it's a good thing they're on our side.

    "Annoyed & Sad but Amazing Story"

    The story itself is truly amazing and one I will never forget.

    At times Marcus gets really preachy, and others he has me bawling.

    "Needed something extra"

    The book had a good story to it, the overall experience was interesting but the author ruins it with writing without tact. I understand what an experience this must have been, obviously not personally but understand how world changing it must have been, but wish it was written with tact and a little bit of grace. It wasn't told like it had the potential for.

    "Wow...so powerful"

    This is no light read.
    I have read more then ½ dozen SEAL books and more then 20 military 1st person books about OEF/OIC. I have known people who have fought and served in Afg myself.
    This book is the most powerful and emotionally potent book I have read explaining what it means to be part a higher calling and a member of an elite fighting force.
    This is no BS, gloves off.
    Such an amazing read.
