Publisher's Summary

Patrick Robinson, coauthor of the number-one New York Times best seller Lone Survivor, shares the gripping untold story of Mohammed Gulab, the Pashtun warrior who defied the Taliban and saved the life of American hero and Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell.

Best-selling author Patrick Robinson helped Marcus Luttrell bring his harrowing story of survival in Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 to the page and the big screen. But the Afghani man who saved his life was always shrouded in mystery. Now, with The Lion of Sabray, Robinson reveals the amazing backstory of Mohammed Gulab - the brave man who forever changed the course of life for his Afghan family, his village, and himself when he discovered Luttrell badly injured and barely conscious on a mountainside in the Hindu Kush just hours after the firefight that killed the rest of Luttrell's team.

Operating under the 2,000-year-old principles of Pashtunwali - the tribal honor code that guided his life - Gulab refused to turn Luttrell over to the Taliban forces that were hunting him, believing it was his obligation to protect and care for the American soldier. Because Gulab was a celebrated Mujahedeen field commander and machine gunner who beat back the Soviets as a teenager, the Taliban were wary enough that they didn't simply storm the village and take Luttrell, which gave Gulab time to orchestrate his rescue.

In addition to Gulab's brave story, The Lion of Sabray cinematically reveals previously unknown details of Luttrell's rescue by American forces - which were only recently declassified - and sheds light on the ramifications for Gulab, his family, and his community. Going beyond both the book and the movie versions of Lone Survivor, The Lion of Sabray is a must-listen for anyone who wants to know more about the brave man who helped the Lone Survivor make it home.

    Story
    "Riveting follow up to Lone Survivor"

    In reading Lone Survivor I was left wondering what had happened to Marcus' Afghani protector.

    This book not only sheds light on Mohamed Gulab as that protector, but allowed me to see everything that happened from his perspective.

    This is an excellent read, and should be required reading for SpecOps soldiers.

    Story
    "Extremely Thought Provoking, At Least It Should Be"

    Couldn't stop listening. Finished in 1 sitting, except for brief interruptions to walk my service dog, refill my tea or my own bathroom breaks. It says slot about how badly our nation's leaders stack up against other nations in regards to Honor and Integrity.

    Story
    "Amazing story, what a man can do w faith "

    I would love to meet the Afghan warrior the Lion, more than any one else in the story. I would hope our government did something for him and his family. It shows that faith in Our Lord, Christ, Allah, Abba, Our savior, our father is all the same. He is good and faith in him knows no barriers, cultural differences, economic status regardess of Anthing else, is the way to goodness in a properly formed conscience...

    Story
    "Great addition to Lone Survivor"

    It is a well told story from the perspective of the man that save Marcus. Some very minor differences from the original story, but keep in mind it's from the memory and perspective of a different person, an Afghan tribesmen.

    As far as the narrator, he did a pretty good job, but as always with Audible military books he. should have done 30 seconds of research on the acronyms instead of just guessing at them.
