This is honestly one of the best books I've read in a long time. I could not put it down. The book covered everything from SEAL training to the actual Redwing Operation to what it was like for Marcus coming home. I especially enjoyed his perspective on the U.S. media and our politicans.

One of the gut wrenching accounts I've ever read of an military operation. Marcus Luttrell and all the SEALS who lost their lives that day are true hero's. And it sickens me that the entire thing could have been avoided but for the "fear" of liberal media.

This is an incredibly moving book. You may be skeptical about the work of our country's military but after reading this book, you will be grateful for the dedication of men and women who protect our country. I highly recommend this book.

I had a hard time in the beginning. I found it easy to get lost in the story of how he visited the families of his brothers. But there is a point where the story puts you shoulder to shoulder and then wham- your stomach heaves and your heart races. After that, I couldn't put it down. I've never felt such a physical reaction from a book before. Of course reading this I knew it was a true account. That probably had something to do with it, as I generally read fiction. I told myself I was going to get in at least 1 non-fiction per year and someone passed it to me and said- this needs to be the one. Godspeed to our troops!

I've always had greatest respect for the Seal teams, being prior Navy and having supported them, but this book just tells it like it is, as far as the training they have to go through, and their mental and physical ability to survive. Very well written, book that is hard to put down.
