Kill Bin Laden

Slow at start and cirquitutious at times but a very infomative report of the Tora Bora situation and difficulties faced when trying to kill Usama Bin Laden by precision bombs.

Great Book!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Kill Bin Laden to be better than the print version?

I think it would be more difficult to keep up with all the characters in a printed version than the audio. The story tell uses different accents to depict different characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Factual book so it wasn't about having a favorite character.

Ex-military that can relate.

Great book. I share the same frustrations as the author with regards to higher level officers who are more concerned about politics and their performance ratings than killing the enemy.

Informative

I selected this title at the suggestion of a friend. The author is very concise about his description of the events which took place on December 2001, in the Tora Bora mountain range. The story is very compelling in a ra-ra sort-of fashion. The author's position as a former Delta operator made me question some of the accuracy presented in the details. A fascinating story, told by someone who was there.

Not much action...yawn...

Overall this book was a three. I was disappointed.
It had some good spots but they were minimal and way too short for the length of the book.

interesting insight

From the first boots on the ground a detailed look in trying to kill the most wanted man in the world. As a huge fan of military nonfiction I really enjoyed this account from Fury. I would recommend the same books he mentions killing the jackal and jawbreaker. was glad I read those before this. Did find it odd that there was no afterward on his thoughts on the raid in Abotabad.

Great inside information

This was a cool book. It is a look inside a world that most of us can only imagine. I drifted from time to time because it is so factual. Great information. Fascinating stuff.

Sheer Bravery

There's much to love in this story of those heroes at the tip of the spear that sought the world's most infamous terror. I loved the inside information.

Last chapters did not work

Otherwise good but the last chapters did not work. Furys novels are more interesting but of course not true.
