about

Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to be very close to Bin Laden with a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive.

This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history. His squadmates fought valiantly beside him until he was the only one left alive, blasted by an RPG into a place where his pursuers could not find him. Over the next four days, terribly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell crawled for miles through the mountains and was taken in by sympathetic villagers who risked their lives to keep him safe from surrounding Taliban warriors.

A born and raised Texan, Marcus Luttrell takes us from the rigors of SEAL training, where he and his fellow SEALs discovered what it took to join the most elite of the American special forces, to a fight in the desolate hills of Afghanistan for which they never could have been prepared. His account of his squadmates' heroism and mutual support renders an experience that is both heartrending and life-affirming. In this rich chronicle of courage and sacrifice, honor and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers a powerful narrative of modern war.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay It was an okay read. The writing wasn't the best quality and the author would go for short tirades against liberals, etc. The author was the actual survivor of the mission. It was okay, and was good to know the actual story compared to the movie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from When it sticks to the point, it hits bullseye A moving recount of the mission in Afghanistan that claimed lives of group of Navy SEALs. Perfectly captures the camaraderie and bravery of these soldiers, as well as bravery and honor of the villagers who decided to give Marcus, the titular Lone Survivor, sanctuary despite Taliban attacks and pressure to hand him over. better than a very good movie that was still rather thin in some aspects that book covers in grater detail. I docked it a point for unnecessary po;liticla propaganda. As a Candian, I really don't care about which US political partty I should vote for.
