Publisher Description

In June 2005 four US Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al-Qaeda leader known to be ensconced in a Taliban stronghold surrounded by a small but heavily armed force. Less than twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs was alive.

This is the story of team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing. Blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing, Luttrell endured four desperate days fighting the al-Qaeda assassins sent to kill him, before finding unlikely sanctuary with a Pashtun tribe who risked everything to protect him from the circling Taliban killers.

Awesome and heroic

For myself this is a book you can not put down as if you were there fighting as well. The memories of the seal team who fought to the death to help save others is a miracle any one survived these conditions. The American justice department should really have a hard look at themselves as they were also responsible for the events that happened and could have saved these great men’s lives

Watch the movie, don't read the book

If you're not an American, you will struggle reading the first chapters. A Texan redneck hating everyone but Americans. I stopped reading after the first quarter. I agree what he had was a struggle but, my god, there are places out there outside Texas!!
