For the first time anywhere, the first-person account of the planning and execution of the Bin Laden raid from a Navy Seal who confronted the terrorist mastermind and witnessed his final moments.
From the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean? and from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama bin Laden''s compound? operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group ? commonly known as SEAL Team Six ? has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history. No Easy Day puts readers alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the twenty-four-man team as they train for and execute the biggest mission of their lives.
About the Author
Mark Owen is the pseudonym of a former member of the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU) who participated in the mission that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. His book No Easy Day is a military memoir that details Owen's career with DEVGRU, including several combat missions in which he participated with the unit. At least half of the book focuses on Owen's participation in the mission that killed bin Laden. Shortly after the book's announcement, Owen's identity was revealed as Matt Bissonnette; the Department of Defense confirmed that he was the author. For media appearances, including an interview on 60 Minutes, Owen appeared incognito. On September 13, 2012, No Easy Day replaced Fifty Shades of Grey atop USA Today's bestselling books list. Dutton Penguin stated that the book's print run for its first week of sales was up to 1 million copies, not counting e-books. In May 2014, No Easy Day made The New York Times Best Seller List.
