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
    "One you won't forget"

    This is a tale of heroism and loss during the Afghanistan war. Marcus Luttrell is the lone survivor from Operation Red Wing, and this is the story of the battle of murphy's ridge in his own words. Its haunting, and honest...and no matter where your political views lie you will have nothing but respect for his journey.

    Any additional comments?

    Excellent narration, pace, timing, and an incredible story. I particularly liked the information in the forward and the notes at the end that bring the listener forward.

    "Great book. Riveting from beginning to end."

    The amount of courage these Navy Seals have is incomprehensible. Makes you realize how fragile life is, and you look at how God has blessed this country despite all the liberal nonsense that continues. Thank you Marcus and your brave comrades, from the McCarty Family

    Have found audiobooks to be a great way to pass time during long car road trips for work, and Audible makes it easy.

    Story
    "Absolutely tore my heart to shreds"
    Where does Lone Survivor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It seemed to start slow to catch my attention, but when it did it was very hard to stop listening.


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

    Marcus's description of each of his partners being killed. It trully does seem that he relives these terrible nightmares often.


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

    Passion

    "Wow"

    Very well written.
    I find it amazing the kind of men that the Seals produce and comforting knowing that they are the ones defending and protecting us. This book did a perfect job recognizing some of them.
    Must read. the only reason I didn't give it a five star overall is because I'm holding out on that fifth star for a book that really moves me and invokes me into action.
