From the densely packed warren of walled compounds that doubled neatly as enemy bunkers, lush orchards, and high up in the rugged mountainous border area between Afghanistan and Pakistan. U.S. Navy SEALs have fought some deadly battles paying the ultimate sacrifice. Locked in bloody combat with a fierce and battle hardened enemy in a dangerous and harsh environment.
The U.S. Navy SEALS have spent the last ten years on a constant war footing going from war zone to war zone. Since 9/11 the tempo for all Special Forces has stepped up exponentially as the Global War on Terror has gathered pace. None have been busier than the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group more commonly known as SEAL Team Six. Famously known for Operation Neptune Spear the raid Osama bin Landen’s hideout. Finally capturing and killing the allusive al Qaeda leader in 2011.
I truly appreciate Steve Stone’s service, but his books are published appearing not to having been reviewed and edited. Besides the English spelling of certain words rather than American there are miss spellings and incorrect use of words inserted, typos perhaps.
Then too much detail and technicality almost seeming like violating the military on their exact weapons, code words. Etc.
Makes book burdensome to read at times.
Again, I do appreciate authors service and all our armed forces, but books need to be edited carefully before being published.
Great Information, Poor Writing
I am an avid reader of books on Navy SEALs. As such I try to read all that I can. This was the first book that I feel was not proof-read prior to publication. I found multiple mistakes in spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure. Having someone proof-read the text would have eliminated these errors. I found this book very interesting anyway.
Interesting story, but the book reads like it was spell/grammar checked by a 4 year old.
