Publisher Description

The first and only book to ever be written by a member of America's most secret military unit―an explosive and unlikely story of service and sacrifice.

Inside our military is a team of operators whose work is so secretive that the name of the unit itself is classified. Highly-trained in warfare, self-defense, infiltration, and deep surveillance, "the Unit," as the Department of Defense has asked us to refer to it, has been responsible for preventing dozens of terrorist attacks in the Western world. Never before has a member of this unit shared their story — until now.

From Adam Gamal, one of the only Muslim Arab Americans to serve inside “the Unit," comes an incisive firsthand account of our nation’s most secretive military group. When Adam arrived in the United States at the age of twenty, he spoke no English, and at 5’1” and 112 pounds, he was far from what you might expect of a soldier. But compelled into service by a debt he felt he owed to his new country, he rose through the ranks of the military to become one of its most elite and skilled operators.

With humor and humility, Adam shares stories of life-threatening injuries, of the camaraderie and capabilities of his team, and of the incredible missions―but also of the growth he experienced as he learned to understand his own moderate faith.

Enthralling and eye-opening, The Unit is at once a gripping account of the fight against terror, an urgent examination of the need for diversity, and an inside look at how America fights its battles abroad in the modern age of terrorism.

This edition includes a 16 page color photo insert.

The Unit

I like this book and as I read it, it brought back memories of my life before the military, my military career and finally life after the military. Having lived outside the US for a 1/3 of my life has opened my eyes and cause me to see the good and bad in people. I appreciate CSM (ret) Gamal’s passing along his journey in life and to the USA, thank you. May God continue to bless you and your family. HOOAH!

Non-Woke narrative and honest look at America today

I thought it would be military door kicking book but I found lots of truth to the story. As a minority retired army guy myself, I agree 100% with his story. Great American sorry. Thank you sir.

Woke narrative

Woke Political agenda. Vailed indoctrination towards a leftist ideology and fantasy land.
