No Hero: The Evolution of a Navy SEAL

by Mark Owen, Kevin Maurer

Penguin Publishing Group | November 10, 2014 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

No Hero: The Evolution of a Navy SEAL is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
The companion volume to the multimillion-copy classic No Easy Day by former Navy SEAL Mark Owen reveals the evolution of a SEAL Team Six operator
 
Mark Owen’s instant #1 New York Times bestseller, No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama bin Laden, focused on the high-profile targets and headline-grabbing chapters of the author’s thirteen years as a Navy SEAL. His follow-up, No Hero, offers a rare counterpoint: an account of Owen’s most personally meaningful missions, missions that never made headlines, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates in both success and failure.
 
“I want No Hero to offer something most books on war don’t: the intimate side of it, the personal struggles and hardships and what I learned from them,” says Owen. “The stories in No Hero are a testament to my teammates and to all the other active and former SEALs who have dedicated their lives to freedom. In our community, we are constantly taught to mentor the younger generation and to pass the lessons and values we’ve learned on to others so that they can do the same for the guys coming up after them. This is what I hope I have done for readers of No Hero.”
 
Every bit as action-packed as No Easy Day, and featuring stories from the training ground to the battlefield, No Hero offers readers a never-before-seen close-up view of the experiences and values that make Mark Owen and the SEALs he served with capable of executing the missions we read about in the headlines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book Tells the story perfectly of how Mark became the SEAL that he was. Written like that last one in the same descriptive detail that is able to draw the reader in and let them experience what he was thinking at that time in his life. The only complaint is some pages have "classified" information in them so the put the typical U.S Army black lines though them. They are annoying as in the middle of reading you stumble onto a paragraph of nothing but lines. If you can overcome skipping a few pages to continue reading the story you will be fine. If you liked No Easy Day then you will like this book as well.
