Publisher's Summary

Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs in a powerful story of contemporary global anti-terrorism. Inspired by true events, the story combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the minute battlefield technology and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure. Act of Valor takes listeners deep into the secretive world of the most elite, highly trained group of warriors in the modern world.

When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home. Each time they accomplish their mission, a new piece of intelligence reveals another shocking twist to the deadly terror plot, which stretches from Chechnya to the Philippines and from Ukraine to Somalia. The widening operation sends the SEALs across the globe as they track the terrorist ring to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they engage in an epic firefight with an outcome that has potentially unimaginable consequences for the future of America.

Go SEALs

This is a very good book: a novelization of the movie. It leads you through the exciting and close paced world of US Special Operations Forces. As I was reading, I wondered where some of this material originated. You can't make this up. I want to see the movie.

Great performance But......

Would you consider the audio edition of Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor to be better than the print version?

I wouldn't know I Drive a truck for a living so all of my books are on audio.

Would you be willing to try another book from Dick Couch and George Galdorisi ? Why or why not?

yes I would even though I thought this one was sort of rushed. I prefer more story detail and build up in a action story.

Any additional comments?

I really wanted to love this book. I went into it with very high hope's but I have to admit this one for me fell a little short. I will say this though I'm glad I listened to it before seeing the movie it helped to understand the story line of a very abridged version of the story the film used.

Protecting our Freedoms

I highly recommend this book if you have any interest in what takes place 'behind' the scenes to protect the world from Terrorists. The story unfolds slowly but builds speed ending with emotion and impact.

Great story about the brotherhood of SEALS.

Superb Book!

If you could sum up Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor in three words, what would they be?

Wonderful! Awesome! Entertaining!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor?

What I really liked most was the attention to detail of the characters. The author took you into the personal lives and minds of the main characters. The book was not just mindless violence and action. You got to learn about these people, how they thought, and a little about their personal lives. This book let you see the people behind the trident.

Which character – as performed by Steven Weber – was your favorite?

Roarke Engel was my favorite character. The book focused around him and Dave Nolan.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was amazed by how quickly the life of Christo, a bad guy, changed. He went from having great wealth and power to losing it all in a matter of moments. He never saw it coming. And, it was the result of one bad decision, supporting his terrorist friend.

Any additional comments?

The naration by Steven Weber is superb! He really makes the book come alive. This audiobook is extremely well written and narated. It is a rollercoaster ride which keeps the reader's attention from beginning to end. I highly recommend it!
