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.

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.

Great to learn history from those that were there.

Great to learn history from those that were there. we need these books so history is not written by academics who tend to want to put their own spin on it.

Disappointed

Obviously, the men and women discussed and the author are patriots and heroes. That said, I was really disappointed. I loves all the Kolt Non-fiction series, but this was brutal. Narrator was fragmented and boring. There were pivotal battles that changed the world, yet they were described like a trip to the grocery store. everything could have been better, including the anticlimactic finish. I do not believe MAJ Greer would have the audio adaptation present the way it did. First time I've asked for a refund in 30 books.

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.

You can always leave from Delta

I understand why they don't talk about things, but you can always learn from Delta. Great book great read and we'll narrated.

I do love how it puts the blame of how parts of the operation failed squarely where it belongs!

Black and white

Factual but very bland development of what could have been a good story. Use some metaphors!

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.
