Navy SEAL sniper and New York Times bestselling author Brandon Webb’s personal account of eight of his friends and fellow SEALs who made the ultimate sacrifice.
“Knowing these great men—who they were, how they lived, and what they stood for—has changed my life. We can’t let them be forgotten. We’ve mourned their deaths. Let’s celebrate their lives.”—Brandon Webb
As a Navy SEAL, Brandon Webb rose to the top of the world’s most elite sniper corps, experiencing years of punishing training and combat missions from the Persian Gulf to Afghanistan. Along the way, Webb served beside, trained, and supported men he came to know not just as fellow warriors, but as friends and, eventually, as heroes.
This is his personal account of eight extraordinary SEALs who gave all for their comrades and their country with remarkable valor and abiding humanity: Matt “Axe” Axelson, who perished on Afghanistan’s Lone Survivor mission; Chris Campbell, Heath Robinson, and JT Tumilson, who were among the casualties of Extortion 17; Glen Doherty, Webb’s best friend, killed while helping secure the successful rescue and extraction of American CIA and State Department diplomats in Benghazi; and other close friends, classmates, and fellow warriors. These are men who left behind powerfully instructive examples of what it means to be alive—and what it truly means to be a hero.

I just downloaded a sample of this book, and can’t wait to read it! Wanted to say that the quote from Brandon Webb is one of the best I have ever read, it made me cry good tears! And the description to the book is fantastic & an incredibly, awesome job! I will make sure to keep sharing the stories of service men & women I learned about before, like Matt Axelson, and I will continue sharing stories of the ones I learn about in this book etc! God bless & thank you for doing such an effort-filled job of carrying on their legacy🙏😇🇺🇸
You walked among heroes and then chose to lie about your actions in combat.
A great book that puts faces and people behind the name of Navy Seal. We hear of their exploits but not of who they are. This is their story.
