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.

    Story
    "Epitomizes everything that's bad about America"

    I've read many accounts of troops in our current wars, and would recommend "Red Platoon," "The Outpost," and "Dead Men Risen."

    This book is an extended right wing rant, and the author never stops patting himself on the back via the always-annoying technique of "humble bragging." This guy is the perfect example if why we get into stupid no-win situations, and he never stops talking about all the bullies he loves and looks up to. I can see why the tiny-brained folk would love this: It's a cartoon.

    I'm two hours into this and it's still just rants and boasting. Bleah. I'm done. Save yourself some time and money and try one of the many excellent war accounts out there.

    Story
    "great story The narration is ok"

    it starts off as probably the worst narration I've ever listen to. like that narrator is trying to remake War and Peace being very dramatic and emotional. dick grew on me however and I found myself really enjoying the book. Great story much respect to our troops.

    Story
    "Narrator's AWFUL shouting voice..."

    Being a book based on the military you can expect a lot of dialogue that is written in all caps... The narrator reads ALL shouted words in a breathy, annoying voice. Couldn't stand it.

    "the story deserves more than 5 stars"

    the performance was pretty good, but when your reading a story of this caliber it does not matter in the slightest. if you do one thing today, you should start listening to this.
