Publisher's Summary

The Last Punisher is a bold, no-holds-barred first-person account of the Iraq War. With wry humor and moving testimony, Kevin Lacz tells the story of his tour in Iraq with SEAL Team Three, the warrior elite of the navy. This legendary unit, known as The Punishers, included Chris Kyle (American Sniper), Mike Monsoor, Ryan Job, and Marc Lee. These brave men were instrumental in securing the key locations in the pivotal 2006 Battle of Ramadi, told with stunning detail in this book.

Minute by minute, Lacz relays the edge-of-your-seat details of his team's missions in Ramadi, offering a firsthand glimpse into the heated combat, extreme conditions, and harrowing experiences they faced every day. Through it all, Lacz and his teammates formed unbreakable bonds and never lost sight of the cause: protecting America with their fight.

The Last Punisher brings the listener into the life and mind of a SEAL, demonstrating the tough realities of war. At the same time, Lacz shares how these experiences made him a better man and how proud he is of his contributions to one of this country's most difficult military campaigns.

    "Great book, the narrator was just OK."

    The story was great, and for someone who was in Ramadi during the same time frame it was pretty cool to hear about things you lived through from a different perspective!
    The narrator on the other hand was decent, except for his mis-pronunciation of military terms, phrases, and acronyms drove me crazy at times. But overall I'd recommend this book!

    "I don't know how I even made it trough the book"

    I do not know how I made it through the whole book this guy's voice is just not very appealing I apologize and do not mean to be insulting but I just cannot stand his voice reading the book. the book is great but his voice just kind of annoys me out it almost feels like my wife is yelling at me when I get home from work. he just sounds like he wants to be a total badass. I'm sorry but I could barely barely make it to the book other than that the story is great

    "Good story, poorly read"

    I enjoyed the story but the narrator was painful. It was like he was surprised by what word came next and where pauses and emphasis should be placed. As an example "... He was hit by a stray round" was read like "... He was hit by a stray... round". It could have been better but doesn't ruin the story.

    "Good book"

    The delivery of the an otherwise good book was distracting. It's still worth a listen.

    "Great Story Ruined"

    This is a truly great account of some of the most talented SeALs our country has ever produced. Unfortunately it is a difficult listen as the narrator has a very staccato pace that is brutal to listen to. He can not seem to read one sentence without having to stop and take a break. Save your money and buy the book.

    "Good Book"

    This was a good compliment to American Sniper from a different person on the ground.
    Kevin did a good job with the retelling of his experiences.
    The Narrator was too over the top in the reading.

    "Ok"

    Some of the shit this guy says, sounds like a 16-year-old kid.
    There's a lot more mature guys in the seals then this one.
