Publisher's Summary

Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive.

This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history. His squadmates fought valiantly beside him until he was the only one left alive, blasted by an RPG into a place where his pursuers could not find him. Over the next four days, terribly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell crawled for miles through the mountains and was taken in by sympathetic villagers who risked their lives to keep him safe from surrounding Taliban warriors.

A born and raised Texan, Marcus Luttrell takes us from the rigors of SEAL training, where he and his fellow SEALs discovered what it took to join the most elite of the American special forces, to a fight in the desolate hills of Afghanistan for which they never could have been prepared. His account of his squadmates' heroism and mutual support renders an experience for which two of his squadmates were posthumously awarded the Navy Cross for combat heroism that is both heartrending and life-affirming. In this rich chronicle of courage and sacrifice, honor and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers a powerful narrative of modern war.

    "Hero, brother, friend, family, son, teammate, strong, courageous, American, Texan"

    Marcus Luttrell is an American hero along with all other American military men and woman listed in this book. We must hear the true words and stories of these men's sacrafies so that we may attempt and yet always fail to try to understand or relate in some manner. These men's doing is far out of reach and understanding to all civilians and I say that as one. Those who don't read ooks like this or research credible resources rely on Hollywood's depiction and idea of war past and present. The film Lone Survivor greatly honored all those invovled unlike many other military movies made today. Thanks you. Marcus and thank you to all men who lost there lives in and around Operation Red Wing. Also, thank you to all of America's great Freedom Fighters and Defenders. You are greatly loved and appreciated.

    Story
    "Riviting report of a Navy Seal"

    This was without the most riveting book I have ever read or listened too. Knowing this was a true story of these Super Brave Men made it even more so. If you have not read this book, I highly recommend it. If you choose the Audible it is even more so because you feel his pain and suffering and get the feeling that you are right there with him. I give this book top honers as well as the courageous Seals about whim this book was written. God Bless You young men for your sacrifice.

    "MUCH BETTER than the movie!!!!!"

    A MUST READ FOR ANYONE WHO CLAIMS TO CARE ABOUT AMERICA!!!
    If only the truths shared by this young warrior could be shouted from the rooftops until the career politicians and sensational seeking mongrels of the liberal media hang their selfish narrow minded heads in shame.

    "One you won't forget"

    This is a tale of heroism and loss during the Afghanistan war. Marcus Luttrell is the lone survivor from Operation Red Wing, and this is the story of the battle of murphy's ridge in his own words. Its haunting, and honest...and no matter where your political views lie you will have nothing but respect for his journey.
