Format: Hardcover
Fictional thrillers about elite combat units pale by comparison to this true story. All Americans should read this book to learn what our armed forces are doing to prepare for and engage our terrorist enemies . . . and how difficult and dangerous those tasks are. The book squarely poses the question of whether military or civilian lives should have greater priority in terrorist combat. In this case, following the rules of engagement seems to have led to the deaths of many SEALS and other American military personnel . . . as well as the deaths of many enemy combatants.

The story of Lone Survivor focuses on a mountainside battle during which four SEALS were outnumbered about 35 to 1 by Taliban forces that were protecting an al Qaeda leader. The SEALS were in a tactically compromised situation with no adequate communications to call for help. The SEALS defended themselves as vigorously as anyone could, and three of them died despite amazing heroism and great training. The fourth SEAL, Marcus Luttrell, survived only through the grace of God and the protection of Pashtun tribe while being tracked and menaced by the Taliban.

Before the battle, Lone Survivor moves backward in time to describe how Leading Petty Officer Luttrell became a SEAL and how even that intense training wasn't nearly as demanding as combat turned out to be. The book concludes with his rescue, recovery from his wounds and illness, and fulfilling his promises to his comrades.

There's a lot of heartbreak in this story. You'll be changed by what you read and how you feel about what happened.

As an American, I feel very proud of those who serve in the American Armed Services and feel enormous gratitude to the elite units for the special risks and rigorous training they endure for our sakes.

There's certainly a lot of 'chest-thumping' and 'flag-waving' going on (especially in the beginning of the book), but if you bear with it, you will not be disappointed. These guys put themselves through so much just to be the front-line men of the global chessboard and they deserve your attention and support.

This book is as advertised, a solid well written first hand account of one young SEAL's desire and ordeal in become a SEAL, followed by his first hand account of the terrible battle where he was the lone survivor of a small kill team inserted into the Hindu Kush mountains early on in the Afganistan War.

I haven't given this five stars because it is not at the same level as the great eyewitness battle accounts - such as With The Old Breed by E.B. Sledge.

Nonetheless,I strongly recommend the book with the caveat that is is a very good book, but not a great one.

This man certainly deserves all the medals and praise he received for his heroic actions in Afghanistan. The telling of the actual battle was well done but I found myself skipping through large sections on Seal training and events at home while listed as missing in action.

What an amazing read. The work and dedication to be a SEAL is mind blowing. Marcus did a great job of writing about an emotional, tragic experience that honours the sacrifice of his fellow soldiers. I am in awe of the dedication and fortitude that these men demonstrated. I have the utmost respect for their sacrifice.

ONe of the most heart wrenching, gripping books I've ever read. Once operation Red Wing starts you will not be able to stop reading!

Although there are some inconsistencies in some of the fact (ie. number of Taliban attackers) the underlying reselling of the battle is staggering. A great read book!
