Service: A Navy Seal At War is rated 5 out of 5 by 5.
Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him-and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom.

In Service, we follow Marcus Luttrell to Iraq, where he returns to the battlefield as a member of SEAL Team 5 to help take on the most dangerous city in the world: Ramadi, the capital of war-torn Al Anbar Province. There, in six months of high-intensity urban combat, he would be part of what has been called the greatest victory in the history of U.S. Special Operations forces. We also return to Afghanistan and Operation Redwing, where Luttrell offers powerful new details about his miraculous rescue. Throughout, he reflects on what it really means to take on a higher calling, about the men he's seen lose their lives for their country, and the legacy of those who came and bled before.

A thrilling war story, Service is also a profoundly moving tribute to the warrior brotherhood, to the belief that nobody goes it alone, and no one will be left behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riveting I had read Lone Survivor and now Service by Marcus Luttrell. Very good book, both, detailing and recalling his training,life as a SEAL's. He is a man of faith,great love for his brothers at arms, his twin brother, his family and his country. He has suffered much ,physically as well as emotionally, losing close friends,comrades at arms. A well written book. I enjoyed it tremendously. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can i give 5+ stars? I've read a lot of SEAL bios but this was incredible. Hearing sine things straight from Marcus about what really happened was interesting and reassuring, also a reminder that media doesn't necessarily have the up to date interpretations! i enjoyed the wiring style and the intense look beyond the scenes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Read! This is a must read book! As someone who has never served, who can't imagine what these men (and women) have gone thru and seen, I can start to see it and understand it now. Thank you to all who have served, and to those who were lost, I may sleep in peace each and every nigh because of what you have done
