Publisher's Summary

In June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader. Less then 24 hours later, only one of those SEALs remained alive.

This is the story of team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing and the desperate battle that led to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history. More than anything, this is the story of how his teammates stood beside him until he was the last one left - blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and breathing.

Over the next four days, badly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell fought off six al Qaeda assassins who were sent to finish him, then crawled for seven miles through the mountains before he was taken in by a Pashtun tribe that risked everything to protect him from the Taliban.

In this moving chronicle of courage, Marcus Luttrell offers one of the most powerful narratives ever written about modern warfare.

    "Action Packed"

    This was a little slow at first. He talks about school but if you can get through the first part OMG this is action packed.

    "Inspiring, great book"

    Wow. This is the most inspiring person with the most inspiring story. This man is a real American Hero, and makes me proud to be an American, and even more supportive of our men and women in the Armed Forces who face this danger daily. They should all be regarded as heros. Athletes are great to watch, but these people are the true heros! Great man, great story of toughness and dedication.

    "Very powerful book."

    This is a must read for anyone who questions why we are the country we are. Anyone who could come down on the author for his political views or his feelings on the media should be ashamed of themselves. This man has earned the right to feel that way and knows better than anyone what the effects are of having such a bleeding heart media reporting opinions and not facts.

    "Great Book!"

    This book gives a great insight into what went into the operations and what actually happened when they got on the mountain. It also gives a good idea about SEAL training and BUDS/Hell week. You'll be happy with this book if you like the Special Forces!

    "Not For The Faint of Heart"

    Great story line. Excessive, unnecessary language. Easily visualized violence.

    "Must listen"

    Highly recommend. We had 2 boys (16 years old) in the backseat who thought they wanted no part of an audio book. After 45 minutes they were begging us to not turn it off.
    We all learned so much about Afghanistan. I've read many books on Afghanistan - this offered a new perspective.

    "I BEG YOU TO LISTEN TO THIS BOOK."

    This book is truly amazing. I don't care what your stance on the war on terror is. You will come away with a better realization of how lucky we are, even blessed, to live in a country where brave men have always risen to the threat against our families, country, and liberty! Marcus makes my heart swell with pride in the american defined attribute of uncommon courage by common americans. I am so greatful for the sacrafice that so many have made that freedom may ring through out this land.

    "Outstanding courage"

    From start to finish the story moves. Marcus draws you into the story in such a way that one feels like he/she is actually there with him and his fellow Seals. This is a true accounting of outstanding courage. Marcus deserves a wonderful rest of his life. Thank you and your friends in arms for all you do to protect this country.
