The true story of the killing of bin Laden by author and former U.S. Navy SEAL Chuck Pfarrer
On May 2, 2011, at 1:03 a.m. a satellite uplink was sent from Pakistan crackling into the situation room of the White House: "Geronimo, Echo, KIA." These words, spoken by a Navy SEAL, ended Osama bin Laden's reign of terror. SEAL Target Geronimo is the story of Neptune's Spear from the men who were there. After talking to members of the SEAL team involved in the raid, Pfarrer shares never-before-revealed details in an exclusive account of what happened as he takes readers inside the walls of Bin Laden's compound penetrating deep into the terrorist's lair to reach the exact spot where the Al Qaeda leader was cowering when the bullet entered his head. SEAL Target Geronimo is an explosive story of unparalleled valor and clockwork military precision carried out by the most elite fighting force in the world—the U.S. Navy's SEAL Team Six.

SEAL TARGET GERONIMO
I enjoyed this book. I found it well reseached ,written and narrated. To my initial surprise the book provided considerable context for the ultimate raid on Bin Laden's compound. While I bought the book looking for a detailed account of how Bin Laden was tracked down by SEAL team six, the book surprisingly offered more than that. The book does a good job of summarizing key points in the history of the SEALS and SEAL team six in particular. It also provided insight into the political world that special forces leadership are called upon to participate. Finally, the bookt provided a thoughtful and well reasoned analysis of MIddle East politics and how Bin Laden gained support for his cause in that dynamic environment. On the attack itself, the book did not dissappoint.
