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 be very close to Bin Laden with a small army in a Taliban stronghold.

Hollywood is jealous that they did not dream this story up first. If you determine that you are going to read this book, then get ready for a wild ride. For those who have never been in the military, the bravdo expressed throughout the book may become tiresome. But to those who have served and had the privledge to know special men such as these and call them friend, it will seem like comon place. Luttrell's views of our politicians and news media are in line with my own views I had when on the line and I am sure that it will strike a common cord with most readers.

Wonderful book!!! Scary what we ask our soldiers to do and then not support them. They are in a foreign country trying to fight by our rules. But very few countries fight by our rules. Thanks Marcus for an aweinspiring look at what you lived thru. I am proud of all of our soldiers defending our freedom. God bless and keep them all safe!Great book, must read.

This is probably my favorite book out of the hundreds I have read. The courage and sacrifice Marcus and his team expressed were enough to inspire me to join the military. Now I understand why the military views the US media and politicians the way we do. Great book, a must read.

I would give it 10 stars if the options existed. An excellent accounting of a mission gone bad and the moral
dilemma these men faced. How our government offers up ROE's (Rules of Engagement) that can't be maintained if one wishes to survive. How our country has a double standard. I never realized what it took to become a navy
seal and what these men are willing to risk for God and country. Marcus Luttrell has done a noble thing by publishing this book and honoring the lives of those men
who were killed in the mission. I found the book thought provoking,action packed, patriotic and motivational.
