Product Description

Review

"This harrowing, minute-by-minute account by one of the highly trained members of Navy SEAL Team Six is narrative nonfiction at its most gripping, taking the reader through the mountains of Afghanistan and inside the slightly dilapidated-looking family compound in Pakistan." - Entertainment Weekly

“The bin Laden story is the marquee event in No Easy Day, of course. But the formative steps in the author’s own story are just as gripping. Mr. Owen’s new information about the Abbottobad attacks adds a human element to much of what has been previously reported. There is no better illustration in No Easy Day that SEALs are ruthless pragmatists. They think fast. They adapt to whatever faces them. They do what they have to do.” –Janet Maslin, New York Times

“The book is a stomach-twisting close-up look at that historic mission in Abbottabad, told from the point of view of a super-elite member of SEAL Team Six who fired a bullet into bin Laden and helped carry away the corpse. Written in clean, polished prose... No Easy Day often reads like a gripping novel as the author recounts remarkably vivid details... No Easy Day puts you right there for every tense moment.” –Entertainment Weekly

" ...A cast of characters, including Owen himself, artfully drawn, yet painfully human, passionate descriptions of a lifestyle that few are privy to, as well as its breathlessly paced, inexorable march toward an inevitable ending…it's a remarkably intimate glimpse into what motivates men striving to join an elite fighting force like the SEALS — and what keeps them there.” -Associated Press

Make no mistake: No Easy Day is an important historic document. Think if we had a first-person account of the last minutes of Hitler in his bunker. No Easy Day is brisk and compelling in its telling of the training, execution and immediate aftermath of the Bin Laden mission by the elite Seal Team Six.” -Los Angeles Times
 
“[Mark Owen] has given us a brave retelling of one of the most important events in U.S. military history.”  -People Magazine
 
“The writing is fast-paced, and Owen and Maurer tell some good yarns in a conversational style. They also neatly capture the camaraderie, the pranks, the constant training and the evident love that the men of SEAL Team 6 have for their jobs." -Washington Post

About the Author

Mark Owen is a former member of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group, commonly known as SEAL Team Six. In his many years as a Navy SEAL, he has participated in hundreds of missions around the globe, including the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean in 2009. Owen was a team leader on Operation Neptune Spear in Abbottabad, Pakistan, on May 1, 2011, which resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. Owen was one of the first men through the door on the third floor of the terrorist mastermind’s hideout, where he witnessed Bin Laden’s death. Mark Owen’s name and the names of the other SEALs mentioned in No Easy Day have been changed for their security.

Kevin Maurer has covered special operations forces for nine years. He has been embedded with the Special Forces in Afghanistan six times, spent a month in 2006 with special operations units in east Africa, and has embedded with U.S. forces in Iraq and Haiti. He is the author of four books, including several about special operations.

Although the author states a disclaimer at the beginning saying that "nothing is revealed" throughout this novel, it provides a new and exciting look at the other side of the news. Not only does this book chronicle the events of the death of Osama bin Laden, but it follows a US Navy SEAL throughout the majority of his career. The reader watches the growth of a SEAL, and the team of which he is a part.

For those who like military history, action, and cool stuff, this is definitely your book. Not to mention the insight into a turning point in the War on Terror.

Great insight into the Seals themselves, never mind the gripping account of catching UBL. Writing is tight and disciplined, no BS, straigtforward approach. One really gets a sense of how these guys train and work. An example of the phenomenal character of so many American servicemen. Highly recomend.

This book I got for my fiance for Christmas and he didn't stop talking about it forever. I think I could have told you the whole book without even reading it. He really loved it and found it well written and very interesting.

Amazing book. Really gave me an insight into the lives, and minds, of the elite troops of today. I really enjoyed having a peek into and otherwise hyper-private world. Would recommend to friends.

By Lynne Frappier TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 31 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The issue with this book is that Owen is a SEAL and not an author; and so he often repeats himself within the same paragraph. I also found that since he took such care and attention to ensure that no military secrets were revealed, some of the descriptions couldn't go into the detail that would have provided more tension to the scenarios.

Interesting read? Sure.

Great military read? No. But I'm happy to have the majority of the proceeds of sales of this book go to help veterans.
