Publisher's Summary

From the coauthor of the #1New York Times bestseller Lone Survivor comes the riveting behind-the-scenes story of the three NavySEALs who captured the "Butcher of Fallujah" and, having been charged with prisoner abuse, their long road to justice.

On a daring nighttime raid in September 2009, a team of Navy SEALs grabbed the notorious terrorist Ahmed Hashim Abed, the villainous "Butcher of Fallujah," the mastermind behind the 2004 murder and mutilation off our American contractors. In this no-holds-barred account, bestselling author Patrick Robinson reveals for the first time the entire story, from the night the SEALs stormed the al-Qaeda desert stronghold to the accusations and legaltwists and turns that followed to the cut-and-thrust drama in the court room where the fate of three American heroes hung in the balance.

    I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.

    Story
    "Not going to make you feel good"

    This is the story of Navy SEALs who are persecuted for simply doing their job. Makes me sad to think that the U.S. Navy would commit such a terrible betrayal.

    "Amazing"

    This was simply put and amazing story. It depicts how political correctness in our armed forces changes everything. Also shows how willing our own government is to turn on its Heroes

    Story
    "A little confusing..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Honor and Betrayal to be better than the print version?

    In the beginning it seem a little hard to follow because they had the three story lines of each SEAL. It seemed like they bounce back and forth. Not sure if it was just me, probably would have been easier to read. It was a great book after the first couple chapters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The non guilty verdicts of course. Just makes me mad at the brass. I would want to know if Obama was the driving force of the prosecution after Gitmo.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really like the first trial and how the defense questioned both witnesses.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listening it to over a couple weeks while hiking.

    Story
    "Duh...does Patrick Robinson know what hyperbole is"

    Yes the U.S. Navy and the SEALS are fine organizations filled with battle-ready patriotic warriors and we owe them our support and heartfelt thanks.

    However the endless hyperbole that Patrick Robinson has adopted in this book is so excessive as to be amateurish. I've read all his books and I'm amazed and disappointed with the style he has used here. I don't think I can listen to another word of it. Too bad!

    Story
    "Perfidy of our Brass and POTUS"

    having served on subs during the Reagan years, it was hard to accept how much our military brass has gone from warriors to pencil necked, PC bureaucrats, useless political sycophants. Very sad. Equally infuriating was the level of complicity of our commander in Chicken, BHO. This country's security is now in the hands of weak men of questionable character. A real shooting war today, with any formidable enemy, will eat out lunch. Not because of the quality of our fighting men, but due to spineless leadership, or what passes for it today, (see Admiral Mullen).

    "Hyperbole is not the only descriptive out there"

    The authors use of hyperbole becomes overwhelming after twenty minutes, like ten days in a tornado. Good account, bad description
