Service: A Navy SEAL at War | [Marcus Luttrell]

Service: A Navy SEAL at War

Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him-and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom.

Publisher's Summary

Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him-and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom.

In Service, we follow Marcus Luttrell to Iraq, where he returns to the battlefield as a member of SEAL Team 5 to help take on the most dangerous city in the world: Ramadi, the capital of war-torn Al Anbar Province. There, in six months of high-intensity urban combat, he would be part of what has been called the greatest victory in the history of U.S. Special Operations forces. We also return to Afghanistan and Operation Redwing, where Luttrell offers powerful new details about his miraculous rescue. Throughout, he reflects on what it really means to take on a higher calling, about the men he's seen lose their lives for their country, and the legacy of those who came and bled before.

A thrilling war story, Service is also a profoundly moving tribute to the warrior brotherhood, to the belief that nobody goes it alone, and no one will be left behind.

    "Excellent book with easy-to-listen to narrator"

    I just listened to Service for the 2nd time. I really like the stories which Marcus highlights and didn't feel that this book was Lone Surviver 2.0. Service is a fantastic book for anyone who enjoys non-fiction military.

    Story
    "Service indeed."
    What did you love best about Service?

    Thanks to Marcus for getting this out there. It would be helpful to have someone other than Keven T. Collins narrate in my opinion. I found his southern accent to be forced and sometimes it took me out of the story thinking about it instead of being totally captivated. But hey, I don't have the time to read it myself so I can't complain too much.


    Did Kevin T. Collins do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No.

    Story
    "Well worth the listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this book really finishes explaining the story of Lone Survivor.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Service?

    Several, but I will narrow to 2. Learning about the effort put toward the rescue of Marcus and the other was the chapter with the wives.

    Story
    "From the womb to the tomb"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I must admit I had tears a few time while listening to the book. Some stories were very touching. The navy seals are definitely amongst the finest men.


    Any additional comments?

    I would've liked more details about operation Red Wings.
